Zarephath aims to treat children who have experienced trauma in their lives with the use of a specialized treatment called, “Trauma-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy” (TF-CBT). Many children who have suffered trauma in their lives experience symptoms that are dangerous to themselves or their loved ones. TF-CBT is typical to 12-24 week treatment which focuses on addressing the symptoms of trauma, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, anger, sexual abuse and depression.
Parent or caregiver participation and support is necessary to create a sense of safety and engagement. Zarephath employs trained clinicians who complete individualized treatment plans tailored to meet each child and family’s unique behavioral health needs. Our clinicians focus on client and family driven care where treatment plans are structured around each family’s strengths and needs. Length of treatment at Zarephath varies depending on each child and family, and their individual treatment plan. Services take place in our office or in a community based location, such as the child’s home or school.
