Free Counseling Services
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. Eligible clients will participate in this evidenced based trauma service.
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.
