Trauma

For more than 30 years, WJCS has been at the forefront of recognizing and addressing the psychological trauma caused by sexual abuse, domestic and community violence, and other life circumstances. The award-winning WJCS Treatment Center for Trauma and Abuse (TCTA), located in all WJCS clinic locations, is the premier trauma treatment center in Westchester County. The Center provides evidence-based treatment, community education, and related programming to help survivors heal from the traumatic impact of abuse and other forms of violence.

TCTA’s comprehensive outpatient programs are geared towards preventing violence and aggression by children and helping survivors of trauma and abuse. TCTA provides targeted services for survivors of incest and child sex abuse, survivors of sexual assault, sexually aggressive children, and survivors of domestic violence.

Community education and training by WJCS experts fosters a trauma-informed system of care in schools, child-serving and mental health agencies throughout Westchester and within all WJCS programs. This system of care is sensitive to the trauma caused by abuse, violence, poverty and other adverse life experiences.

Programs in various WJCS departments promote healthy relationships throughout the lifespan and are designed to prevent violence and abuse.

Spanish-speaking staff is available at some sites.
