childhood trauma begins here
We are a community-based organization that provides trauma-specific therapy for children, youth, and their non-offending supportive caregivers, as well as for adults and seniors who, as children, experienced interpersonal childhood violence. The focus of our work is to support people recovering from the impacts that interpersonal childhood trauma has had on their lives.
PROGRAMS & SERVICES
Child, Youth & Family Program
A family-centred, strength-based program for children ages 3 to 18 years old who have experienced interpersonal trauma, including sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, witnessing domestic violence, bullying, and acts of war.
A two-phase program for adults ages 19 years and older who have experienced interpersonal childhood trauma. The first phase of the Program is STAIR Group/Coaching.
