Child Trauma Assessment and Treatment Center
Serving children ages 2-18
A growing body of research shows a strong connection between childhood trauma and a variety of poor mental and physical health outcomes later in life, including mental illness, obesity, heart disease, depression, violence, diabetes, and substance abuse. Research also suggests a link between trauma and poorer socio-economic conditions and lower educational attainment. Our Trauma Assessment and Treatment Center is a response to this research.
CFS’ Trauma Assessment and Treatment Center assesses children as young as two and as old as 18 and can provide treatment to people of all ages.
The Center uses a trans-disciplinary team to equip caregivers and anyone who works with a child dealing with trauma with intervention tools needed to help the child increase resilience, improve functioning, and reach their full potential. Trauma-informed practices educate and include all stakeholders engaged with a child and his/her family. These interventions go beyond treating the symptoms of trauma and are directed at the relationship between trauma and its consequences.
