Alliance For Children offers both individual and group counseling services free of charge to confirmed victims of child abuse and their protective family members.
Our clinical counseling staff work closely with clients to determine an individualized treatment program for each child. Counseling modalities utilized include Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through individual and group counseling, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.
It is not unusual for a child to experience the following after a traumatic event has occurred:
- Poor grades
- Drug/alcohol use
Although these can be normal reactions to abuse, it is important for children to learn healthy ways of coping in order to decrease these symptoms. Even if a child does not exhibit any symptoms, it can be extremely beneficial for them to speak with a trained professional to process what happened in order to make sure children understand and feel safe expressing their feelings. With the support of a protective caregiver and effective treatment, a child can recover without long-term negative effects.
Our therapy programs are offered in both English and Spanish. For more information about our Clinical Program, please email Diana Davis.
