Mental Health Services

We use evidence based and developmentally appropriate modalities of mental health care for child trauma victims and their non-offending family members.  We also see adults who are working to heal from trauma after a crime has been committed against them.  No child is ever turned away.  Our Intake Specialist will work with you and/or your child to determine the best approach for therapy.

Specialized Therapy and Groups at NPCAC
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers.  It addresses symptoms of PTSD, depression and anxiety associated with exposure to overwhelming life events.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing – EMDR is a form of psychotherapy designed to diminish negative feelings associated with memories of traumatic events.  The individual does not forget the experience, but is able to integrate it so it can be recalled rather than be re-experience.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – CBT is a type of psychotherapy that modifies thought patterns in order to change moods and behaviors.
  • Alternatives for Families-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – AF-CBT is a comprehensive approach for reducing or preventing the effects of child physical abuse, exposure to child or family aggression, and hostile family environments.  This model seeks to improve relationships between school-aged children and their caregivers.  Appropriate cases include who report the use of ineffective discipline and high rates of child behavior problems, and children who may experience traumatic reactions secondary to physical force/abuse.
