Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

(TF-CBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy approachfor children, youth & their families who are experiencing significant emotional & behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events. TF-CBT is designed to help manage & resolve negative thoughts, behaviors & emotions following a traumatic experience. The TF-CBT program is offered by trained TF-CBT clinical team members, experienced in trauma-related issues, including dynamics of victimization, impact of domestic violence, families with substance abuse concerns, working with foster & adoption issues, grief & loss.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy

(PCIT) is offered to families with children ages 2-7 who are experiencing behavioral issues. PCIT is an evidence-based treatment, which helps parents whose children are exhibiting symptoms such as aggression, defiance, non-compliance & temper tantrums. During PCIT, a therapist observes parent-child interaction in a specially equipped room, behind a one-way mirror. The therapist communicates with the parent through an earpiece, providing “real-time” coaching with a focus on the behaviors of both the child & the parent. Provided in 14-20 weekly sessions, PCIT helps enhance the parent-child bond, improve parenting skills & support positive child behavior.

The program also consists of community-wide education & outreach to increase awareness & reduce stigma associated with postpartum depression.
