Our Center does not provide direct assessment or treatment to youth or families.
We are here to help you and want to get you connected to the right support and services. Our Center does not provide direct assessment or treatment to youth or families. Rather, we develop and provide training and support providers who work directly with youth. The providers we work with include teachers, probation officers, foster parents, residential treatment staff and many more who work with youth every day. Our goal is to provide these important professionals with the trauma-informed knowledge, tools, and practices they need to work most effectively with traumatized youth. If you are looking for assessment or therapeutic services please visit this page.
