Our Approach

Exposure to violence and abuse in childhood is widely recognized as a significant risk factor for serious social, emotional and behavioral problems among children. In many cases, when children are not treated, they may develop a variety of difficulties in adulthood. This trauma may also have a trans-generational pattern and affect both parent and child which makes parenting extremely difficult.
