If you or a family member have been affected by a trauma, we hope to provide information and access to helpful treatment on this website. ¬†We want to praise the steps you are taking now towards healing and recovery. It is important to know that while the past may be having many negative effects on your child and family, with effective treatment and support, there is much hope for improvement. Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) is a specific type of counseling that is very effective at improving children and caregiver’s functioning after going through trauma.
