Children's Friend and Family Services
Children's Friend offers therapeutic treatment of children and families experiencing stress, behavioral challenges, or other mental health concerns. In addition to our general services, we specialize in treatment of the effects of trauma in children and adults; and we also have special training in treatment of early childhood behavioral challenges (tantrums and the like!). Many of our staff are trained and accredited in Triple P (the positive parenting program) or TFCBT (trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy). All of our staff are trained in ARC (attachement, regulation and competency).
