What trauma types are common in children treated through your program?

We treat youth who are experiencing difficulties related to one or more personal traumas. Types of traumas common in youth treated through our program include (but are not limited to):

  • Natural disasters (like tornados, fires, and floods)
  • Severe accidents or illnesses
  • The traumatic death of a loved one
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Exposure to violence at home, at school, or in the community
  • Or a major change in the child’s living situation (like moving away from a parent)

When it is suspected, but not confirmed, that a child has experienced abuse or neglect, it is recommended that the child be referred prior to treatment for a professional forensic interview. Forensic interviewers are specially trained to safely ask children about possible exposure to abuse, neglect or other violent or criminal activity. In Oklahoma, please visit the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Oklahoma website for more information on trained forensic interviewers in your area: www.cacok.com
