Community Trauma Workshops
Community Trauma Workshops will cover issues such as understanding trauma and its impact, conflict resolution, emotional regulation, coping skills and other issues that are important to the community.
CFAR therapists provide evidenced based trauma services to those directly impacted by gun violence who present with PTSD symptoms. These services include Prolonged Exposure for adults and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children. Clients participating in this evidenced based trauma service have an average of 15 sessions and must meet eligibility criteria in order to receive this type of therapy.
Staff Training/Group Supervision
CFAR staff will provide training to an organization’s staff around how to engage families in treatment and how to be trauma informed. Training could involve clinical supervision to provide support to help address secondary traumatic stress that may be experienced after working with others who have experienced significant trauma.
