According to studies, 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children; and 80% of 21 year olds that were abused as children met the criteria for at least one psychological disorder. The goal of clinical services for The Parenting PATH is to promote the healing of children and their families impacted by trauma. Healing and prevention require that each person examine their victimization, offense, or role; be supportive of each other in the healing process; and work together to prevent future abuse.
Referrals to clinical services may be made for an assessment only, or for assessment leading to services. Families referred receive a screening interview and personally developed safety plan. A written assessment, including treatment recommendations are also available with appropriate consents. A variety of treatment modalities are available to program participants, including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
