The NC Child Treatment Program
Effective Mental Health Treatment for Children and Families
Established in 2006, the North Carolina Child Treatment Program serves children, adolescents, and families coping with serious psycho-logical trauma or loss. Its faculty has trained a network of community-based mental health clinicians to provide effective, evidence-based treatments.
One such treatment, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), is designed to:
- Reduce negative emotions and behaviors especially those related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and sexual reactivity
- Correct unhelpful thoughts that make healing difficult
- Provide caregivers with the support and skills they need to help their children move past the trauma and loss.
