Trauma Disorders | Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
The Trauma Disorders Clinic is designed to diagnose and treat psychiatric symptoms in children and adolescents who have experienced a trauma in their lives. The clinic also assists families as they cope with the trauma's aftermath. We specialize in the treatment of sexual and physical abuse, as well as the consequences of life-threatening events. The clinic cares for children ages 5 through 18 and has served the needs of our patient population for over 10 years.
In the Trauma Disorders Clinic, an in-depth evaluation of the traumatic event(s) is conducted. Our highly trained team is sensitive to the fact that discussing these events may not be easy for the child and their family. Following a full evaluation, members of our treatment team will sit down with the family and discuss treatment recommendations.
