Creating Stable Childhoods

 

More than 60% of households in LA County report at least one instance of childhood trauma.

Exposure to trauma as a child can fundamentally reshape the architecture of our brains, determining how we view the world, our ability to form relationships, and whether we consider the world safe. When left untreated, trauma can set up harmful patterns that continue for generations. When families are in crisis, we intervene to provide expert clinical care to allow stability and healing.

Creating Stable Childhoods

1 Clinical Expertise

Families’ needs are often deep, ongoing, and unique. Our team of experts in mental and physical health, child development, social work, and education convene to discuss each child’s case individually. We provide tailored support and the highest standard of coordinated care to every family.

2 Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health

Our mental health program for infants and young children focuses primarily on strengthening the relationship between children and parents, helping caregivers better respond to their children’s cues, and preserving children’s sense of safe. We offer services in-home to make it easier for families to access care.

3 Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Internship Program

For current MFT and MSW students with a deep interest in infant and early childhood mental health, we offer a competitive clinical training program that immerses trainees in best practices. Interns receive extensive training with experts in the field, and gain first-hand experience providing dyadic parent-child psychotherapy, as well as individual, family, and group therapy.
