The youth and families served by FosterAdopt Connect have experienced an immense amount of trauma, whether that be inter-generational, chronic, or acute trauma related to abuse, neglect, or being removed from their homes. Prior to coming to us for support, many youth and their families have participated in years of therapy services that have not been effective in addressing trauma or truly reaching a point of healing to be successful in life. Traditional therapy services provide one hour of therapy per week and do not use trauma-specific, evidenced-based practices to address the compounded traumas our families have experienced. Because of this, many youth in the foster care system have developed a mistrust or adverse reaction to therapy.
To help address these barriers, we have developed a nontraditional clinical program to provide intensive trauma-focused, brain-based therapy services to our youth and families who have the most complex trauma histories, extreme mental health issues, and are at risk of disrupting their current foster or adoptive placements.
Referrals for our Clinical Services are reserved for foster and adoptive youth/families. Our Clinical Services are most appropriate for those individuals or families who have histories of chronic abuse or neglect early in life, or experienced significant trauma or mental health challenges, especially those who have not benefited from other more traditional therapies. Because of its intensity, the average length of treatment is six months to one year. The goal is to provide intensive trauma-focused treatment to reduce unwanted behaviors and symptoms so that the client may be more successful in their life.
