Child Abuse Treatment Services at Family Nurturing Center encompass multiple program components. All services are free of charge as dictated by federal funding. An intake is required before beginning any program.
TIC-TOC is a twelve week program serving child victims of sexual abuse ages 4-18, their non-offending parents, caregivers and siblings. Weekly groups for children, who have been sexually abused, include topics on managing uncomfortable feelings, psycho-education, ways to communicate feelings to family, increasing safety, and helping to build a strong support system for those involved. Group topics follow a trauma focused model.
Because child sexual abuse impacts the entire family, separate groups are provided for parents and siblings to help address their unique needs, provide education and offer support. Child care may be available for children under the age of four.
Individual and Family Counseling is also available to help children with a history of abuse/trauma (including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse/neglect and witness to domestic violence). Our staff is trained in evidence-based therapies to address trauma, grief, and interactions between parent and child, including Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
S.O.A.R. (Survivors of Abuse Recovery) is a 12-week program serving adults who experienced childhood sexual abuse. Weekly groups focus on helping participants recognize feelings, identify the impact of their sexual abuse on their current functioning, create new and healthy coping skills to lessen the impact of the abuse on their day to day functioning, develop effective communication skills for healthy relationships, and crate skills to avoid being re-victimized. S.O.A.R. provides a therapeutic and supportive environment bringing together people with similar experiences.
