Our counselors can help with assessment, behavior management, emotional healing, and parenting strategies.
Foster and adoptive children deal with issues of loss, attachment trauma, and abuse/neglect. Often children who have experienced these issues exhibit differences in the brain, which may appear as inappropriate coping behaviors and delayed emotional and social growth.
Our skilled counselors use therapy techniques specially chosen to help these children and their caregivers.
By using play therapy our counselors help children suffering from difficulties like: separation, depression, abuse, post-traumatic stress, or the loss of a family member.
In a play therapy session, children are able to work through problems as they create a world they can master.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the needs of vulnerable children. TBRI uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.
While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI is connection.
CFC provides wrap-around services to families that foster or adopt traumatized children. These include sessions pre- and post- placement to ensure stability of the placement and avoid disruption or removal of the child from their new home.
