The North Carolina Child Treatment Program
Effective Mental Health Treatment for Children and Families

Established in 2006, the NC Child Treatment Program serves children, adolescents, and families coping with serious psychological trauma or loss. Its faculty has trained a network of community-based mental health clinicians to provide effective, evidence-based treatments.

One such treatment, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), is designed to:

  • Reduce negative emotions and behaviors especially those related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and sexual reactivity
  • Correct unhelpful thoughts that impede healing
  • Provide caregivers with support and skills to help children move past the trauma and loss.
