FAMILY TRAUMA INTERVENTION PROGRAM (FTIP)
We are a team of compassionate clinicians who provide client-centered therapy and support to children and families. We are committed to fostering strong relationships, reducing the risk of maltreatment and promoting healing by sharing our expertise in trauma, child abuse and neglect, and intimate partner violence.
The Family Trauma Intervention Program is a therapeutic, home-based program that serves children and families impacted by all types of trauma, including: child abuse/neglect, maltreatment, intimate partner violence, and grief-related issues such as family member fatalities and community violence. Intensive, ongoing individual and/or family therapy is provided to children and caregivers depending on the family’s needs. Additionally, clients with case management needs are linked with appropriate community resources to ensure that their concrete needs are being met. Our program consists of Master’s level clinicians and experienced case managers who partner with families to promote healing. General goals include mitigating the impacts of trauma on mental and physical health, repairing and/or strengthening parent-child relationships, and supporting the overall health and development of the child. Our services are child-centered, family-focused, trauma-informed, based in evidence, and flexible in nature to ensure that we are meeting the unique needs of each child and family we serve.
There are two teams of therapists and case managers who provide services. They both have expertise in trauma in children and families. The 0-18 team specializes in working with all ages of children and their caregivers. The Infant and Early Childhood team specializes in working with children ages 0-6 and their caregivers. Three therapists are co-located at Bivona Child Advocacy Center and collaborate with other members of the Multi-Disciplinary Team to enhance safety and holistic well-being for infants and young children who have experienced, or may have experienced, sexual abuse.
