We provide several free, onsite therapy services for uninsured survivors and caregivers, to support individuals in the healing process. The types of therapy we provide are Parent-Child Interactive Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
Parent-Child Interactive Therapy (PCIT)
PCIT is an evidence-based coaching approach to family counseling for children ages 2-6 1/2, which has been clinically proven to build relationships between caregivers and children.
Caregivers work with our onsite, licensed clinician to address emotional, behavioral, and relationship concerns that are developed between them and the abused and/or maltreated child. PCIT provides caregivers with appropriate and effective responses to a child's behaviors as they occur, through operant theory, traditional psychotherapy, and early development psychology.
Caregivers who complete PCIT have found that their relationships with the child have significantly improved, becoming more satisfying and less strenuous.
Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT is a therapeutic intervention process between children/adolescents ages 3-18 and their caregivers. The aim of this type of therapy is to overcome the impact of traumatic experiences. The model was created to address symptoms like avoidance, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and other trauma reactions, with the caregiver in a safe setting with a certified professional.
In the process, the survivor and their caregiver will identify and learn to process feelings caused by trauma, as well as come to understand that they were not at fault for the events. This method provides the survivor with a safe and nurturing space to openly discuss and process traumas.
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
CPT is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on challenging thoughts that lead to negative emotions, often caused by traumatic-events, and is available for survivors ages 16 and up. CPT is used for individuals who find themselves thinking differently about themselves and their environment, usually in regards to safety, trust, control, esteem, and intimacy.
