Child Abuse Treatment Program
This program provides play, individual, group and family therapy for children ages 3-17 who have been traumatized. The program works with families dealing with intra, and familial sexual abuse, families where children are physically abused or have been exposed to intimate partner violence, and/or families where children are at risk because of their caregiver’s addictions and/or mental health. These services are provided in Grande Prairie to families referred by Children’s Services.
“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”Danielle Bernock
