Trauma Counseling

Children aged 4 and older and their non-offending family members work with counselors specializing in trauma treatment modalities to help children process what has happened to them and move forward.  Children learn strategies to help them manage their fear or feelings of being out-of-control when remembering abusive events and to focus on their own strengths and abilities. Non-offending family members also learn skills to help their children deal with abuse memories and to strengthen parent-child relationships. The majority of our counseling clients have received child abuse assessment services through ABC House, while others are seen on a case-by-case basis in response to outside referrals.
