Trauma Assessment: Children who have been exposed to traumatic experiences such as domestic violence, physical or sexual abuse, abandonment and neglect often suffer from unremitting and distressing symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks, high anxiety, depression, helplessness, suicidality, and low self-esteem. Undetected and untreated, these symptoms lead to ongoing mental health problems, difficulties in school, substance abuse, and trouble with the law. Comprehensive trauma informed assessment, coupled with evidence based interventions for trauma, help a child recover from terrible events in their lives, find hope, and healing. This service is delivered by a multidisciplinary team of highly trained, compassionate, and skillful clinicians, including Dr. Jim Worling, an international scholar in the area of child trauma.
Your gift of $5,000 provides one child/youth with a comprehensive trauma informed assessment and therapeutic intervention over the course of 1 year with the focus of reducing symptoms and increasing hope and healing.
