Mental Health Services:
Without effective therapeutic intervention, many child victims of abuse will suffer on-going or long term consequences that may impact throughout their lives. Our team’s response to allegations of abuse include access to trauma assessments, crisis intervention and longer-term specialized treatment for all child victims and their non-offending family members.
Therapy services are offered free of charge to families at the CPC and our advocates schedule appointments with our mental health providers. When needed, children may be referred to outside therapists in our community. Trauma assessments and crisis intervention often takes place during the child’s first visit to our center.
Group therapy is offered to child victims as well. Family advocates and our mental health providers work together to facilitate the 8-week long program that focuses on self-esteem,making good choices, and body safety.
