We utilize a Trauma Informed Care model because we believe giving our clients the tools to cope with trauma will keep them intact and give them the tools to not only survive, but thrive.
Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or sets of circumstances that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harming or threatening and that has lasting adverse effects on the person’s ability to function and on one’s physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being.
We realize the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for healing.
We recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, staff, and others involved with the system
We respond by fully integrating knowledge and understanding of trauma into counseling and life skills
Untreated trauma can result in physical illness, depression, poor school and work performance, and many other issues.
We utilize the Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency (ARC) as a framework for intervention with youth and families who have experienced multiple and/or prolonged traumatic stress. ARC identifies three core domains that are frequently impacted among traumatized youth, and which are relevant to future resiliency. ARC provides a theoretical framework, core principles of intervention, and a guiding structure for providers working with these children and their caregivers, while recognizing that a one-size model does not fit all. ARC is designed for youth from early childhood to adolescence and their caregivers or caregiving systems.
Each year, our trauma informed programs help thousands
get on the road to recovery.
