The expert therapists at Douglas C.A.R.E.S. work with the entire family. We see the family as a support system for the child. Our approach is that therapy is holistic, and involves incorporating the entire family, with the focus on the child.
We work to educate family members and offer coaching to parents, helping them to be supportive, validating, and affirming.
Some of our work includes teaching parenting skills, the effects of trauma, and education and application. We have conversations about ACES, what Trauma Informed Care means, communication skills, the effects of trauma on people, and how those elements are manifesting themselves in the family.
Even after we are done with a family, any member can call back at any time and see a C.A.R.E.S. therapist.
