Services we offer
Intensive Therapeutic Intervention (Our primary service)
This relationship-based therapeutic intervention is intended for parents and caregivers who are raising biologic, adoptive, or foster children who display challenging or confusing behavior. This intervention blends therapy with psychoeducation about child development, trauma, attachment, and emotion regulation. It is an individualized approach based on results from a video-recorded evaluation of child relationship patterns and trauma.
If a parent/caregiver does not have custody of their child, the caseworker may choose this service along with or separate from the intensive in-home intervention. The Secure Child therapist supervises the parent visitation with the child and delivers relationship and attachment-based therapeutic intervention before, during, and after the visit.
Connect Parent Group
This 10 week, evidence-based intervention is designed to help caregivers understand basic attachment concepts that can be applied across a broad range of situations and relational contexts. These groups will be lead by two trained facilitators and may be virtual or in-person.
Individual Caregiver Education
This ten-hour course is for caregivers experiencing mild to moderate stress with their child and is aimed at providing education in the fundamentals of attachment processes, trauma, and child development. It can be broadly applied to the special needs of children with histories of loss, maltreatment and trauma.
Consultation and Training
We provide consultation for social work staff, administrators, CSA coordinators, and other child welfare professionals to support decision-making around clinical questions, intervention planning, and policy issues related to attachment, trauma, and child development
