Comprehensive and Intervention Services

Services utilize a trauma and violence informed framework and a multidisciplinary approach. Comprehensive assessment services provides consultation and assessment focused on whether a child has been exposed to maltreatment (sexual, physical, emotional abuse and neglect) and/or the extent to which a child may have been affected by exposure to maltreatment/trauma. These assessments determine the child’s present and anticipated future needs and provide recommendations for how these needs can be met most appropriately.

Intervention services are targeted to assist with the care and treatment of children/ youth and their families/caregivers exposed to child maltreatment and who are experiencing difficulties. Children/youth first undergo an assessment to guide interventions. Interventions may include: psycho-education, trauma-specific counseling, support/consultation.
