Individual therapy Depending on the child’s particular situation and level of development, a variety of approaches may be used. These may include traditional talk therapy, cognitive approaches using structured workbooks, play therapy, art therapy, and sandtray therapy.
Child-Parent Psychotherapy A new evidence-based program component that addresses child-parent attachment for children from infancy to seven years of age in the wake of abuse and trauma. This treatment was created by Alicia Lieberman, Ph.D. and Patricia Van Horn, Ph.D. for families with children from infancy to age seven that have experienced domestic violence, abuse and other violent traumas. The experience of Children’s Safety Project staff with children between the ages of three and five has provided ample evidence of the compelling need for treatment for our youngest clients, focusing on the parent-child connection, and on facilitating the parent’s ability to serve as a secure figure of attachment to the child.Play therapy Children who are not yet old enough to formulate their thoughts and feelings in words are able to express themselves powerfully through the language of play. Using evocative materials that include dolls, puppets, miniatures, building toys, doctor kits, and art supplies, they are able to share their concerns and tell us how they view their world. In turn, the therapist is able to use the play to communicate understanding and help the child towards new ways of thinking and behaving.
