Children with a history of sexual abuse may experience a wide range of symptoms including emotional difficulties, behavioral problems, cognitive symptoms and physiological symptoms. Early identification and treatment of traumatized children can prevent potentially serious and long-term negative outcomes.
SafeSpot’s trained mental health professionals utilize a treatment model called Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment that has been researched and evaluated over the past 25 years. This research has consistently demonstrated that TF-CBT is successful at reducing children’s trauma-related symptoms and responses. It is designated a Model Program by SAMHSA’s National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and has received the highest scientific rating as a Well-Supported-Effective Practice by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare.
