Counseling

Small Talk provides counseling services at no cost to children and their families who go through the forensic interview process. Counselors are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

 

When the family arrives for the forensic interview, they will begin with an intake process that includes providing information about available counseling services.  Counselor(s) are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Click Here for more information).

 

We have created a safe place for children to feel anyway that they want or need to feel. Every child reacts to trauma in different ways, which is why working collaboratively with families is vital for a child’s ongoing success in and out of counseling sessions. For this reason we attempt to foster positive development of healthy coping skills in addition to a greater understanding of one’s own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Children’s strengths are encouraged and often guide the therapeutic journey. The development of goals is a vital portion of the work we do in counseling and we want parents to be directly involved in their conception and implementation. Our hope is that the skills these children will learn in individualized sessions will help them in their lives outside of counseling.

 

Individual and group counseling are provided at no cost to clients interviewed at Small Talk. For more information on individual or group therapy here at Small Talk, please contact Alex Brace at abrace@smalltalkcac.org
