Specialized Trauma Therapy Services
CenClear offers specialized services specifically designed to help people of all ages who have had a traumatic experience. Services available in select locations.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
Teens and childrens are especially susceptible to the emotional effects of a traumatic experience. This program is specifically designed to work with children and teens to help them learn to process the emotions they experienced during this time. This therapy helps to alleviate the stress anxiety and depression the child or teen may be feeling and learn to manage the emotions in a more positive way.
This program also focuses on having the parent(s) work with their child through the recovery process. The therapist holds individual sessions with both the childand the parent(s) and also conducts family sessions. Traumatic experiences may include abuse, violence or grief.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Sometimes focusing on a traumatic event makes dealing with the emotions even worse for children and teens. EMDR focuses on the feelings associated with the experience rather than the experience itself. This therapy includes using hand and eye movement to help the person deal with negative emotions and replace them with positive feelings.
The goal is to help the person discuss the negative event without having to re-experience the negative feelings that were associated with it. CenClear has three therapists available to deal with children under the 18 who are victims of sexual abuse.
Traumatic experiences can take a toll on even the strongest person. Seeking Safety is a trauma-focused therapy that helps clients develop coping skills, grounding techniques and education.
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect a person's self-esteem, feelings of security, relationships and abilities. CPT works to help the person gain a healthier perspective and develop skills to challenge negative thoughts.
DBT helps people deal with painful emotions and reduce conflict in their relationships. Patients learn how to be present in the moment, deal with negative emotions and to effectively communicate their feelings in a respectful way. These skills helps clients to strengthen their relationships.
Sometimes the first step to changing behavior is to help a person find a reason to change. Motivational Interviewing helps the person identify what their goals are so they can move away from indecisiveness and toward positive decisions.
This approach helps the person to determine why he/she wants to change a behavior rather than trying to force the change on the person.
