Trauma Program

The Trauma Program nurtures connection and safety in the caregiver-child relationship after experiencing trauma.

What happens in this program?

Children and youth come into the program through one of three streams:

  1. Outpatient Trauma Clinic
    The outpatient clinic offers one-on-one and family therapy appointments.
  2. Trauma and Attachment Group (TAG)
    TAG is a structured year-long support group for children/teens and their caregivers.
  3. Consultative Services
    This stream provides trauma consultation to therapists from other CASA programs.

Who is this program for?

This program is for children and teens ages five to 18 with complex developmental trauma or attachment issues. They may be having significant challenges in their daily routine.

Children must be in a stable home for at least six months prior to service, and must not be actively involved in a court case and/or custody dispute or scheduled to be involved in a court case in the near future.
