Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress

Trauma can have a profound impact on children and their families.

If your child has experienced:

  • Community Violence
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Loss of a Loved One

It can cause unusual behaviors, such as:

  • Anger
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety
  • Illness
  • Moodiness
  • Inattention
  • Depression
  • Clinginess
  • Distress

No one should have to suffer from the effects of trauma alone.

We are experts in the treatment of child and family traumatic stress.

With more than 35 multidisciplinary staff members, extensive research efforts, and 18 evidence-supported treatment options available, we have the tools necessary to help you and your family recover and regain hope.

Help is just a phone call away.
