Courage is not having the strength to go on; it’s going on when you don’t have the strength.Theodore Roosevelt
Child-Centered Trauma Counseling in Cypress
Experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event can profoundly affect not just adults, but children in equally deep and lasting ways. Such events might linger in a child’s mind, manifesting through persistent nightmares, withdrawal from friends, or unexpected physical symptoms. Recognizing these signs is crucial, as they indicate that the child may be struggling with trauma, which can create barriers to their daily life and happiness.
What does Trauma Therapy for Children involve?
At the District Counseling, we provide specialized trauma therapy tailored for the unique needs of children. Using child-friendly versions of therapeutic models such as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) for trauma, we aim to gently guide children away from the shadows of their traumatic experiences and help them reconnect with their lives.
The therapy journey encompasses a variety of skill-building activities and techniques adapted for children. These skills are designed to strengthen a child’s psychological resilience, teaching them to remain present and engaged, fostering a sense of safety and normalcy. The goal is not to forget the past but to empower them to live fully in the present.
Our Pledge to you:
While we cannot guarantee an entirely painless therapeutic journey, our unwavering promise is to be with you at every twist and turn, reflecting empathy and genuine concern. We consider it an honor to accompany you during such a challenging phase.
