Comprehensive and Intervention Services

These integrated clinical services apply a trauma-informed framework to consultations regarding suspected child maltreatment, the impact of verified maltreatment on children and youth, and assessments of parenting capacity. Comprehensive assessments will often require multiple interviews/appointments. Typically, two members of the team will be involved in each session. On some occasions, permission may be requested to allow other team members to observe the appointment through the use of a two-way mirror. We do not audio or video record our sessions and do not allow audio recording of any session.

This program also offers intervention services to maltreated children/youth and their caregivers. The team provides psycho-education and teaching to patients, caregivers and community partners.

The report generated after an assessment is part of the child’s health record and is sent to the referral source. It is not directed to parents, lawyers or others from whom consent for distribution was not obtained.
