Trauma Therapy

Trauma Therapy is designed to assist kids with treatment goals related to childhood trauma or complex trauma. Additionally, treatment works to improve the client’s sense of safety and emotional regulation through a Trauma centered curriculum. The agency can provide but not limited to the following therapy modalities:

Simple Trauma Interventions:

  • TF-CBT

  • EMDR

  • CPT

  • Forward Facing

  • Seeking Safety

  • Animal Assisted Therapy AAT-C

Complex Trauma:

  • Adaptive Intervention Model (AIM) – AIM specializes in childhood complex trauma. This program is designed to move through different therapy modalities to meet the client where they are in treatment. HCS serves children via individual, family, and group interventions. We use a variety of therapeutic interventions to adapt to the client’s current clinical presentation. These interventions include but are not limited to: CBT, TF-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Sand Tray, EMDR, Art therapy, DBT skills, STAR, Animal Assisted Therapy, Seeking Safety, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Somatic Based Interventions.

Sessions strengthen individual and family functioning, improve coping skills, and increase pro-social behavior and problem-solving abilities to achieve increased self-sufficiency.  Specific intervention techniques are integrated with the client’s needs, strengths and cultural perspective. The frequency and duration of the counseling sessions is determined by the Evidence Based Protocol or in collaboration with the client and external team if one is not mandated.

* HCS only accepts referrals from AHCCCS Health Plan’s Case Managers. We do not take self-referrals or private insurance referrals.
