Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)

In this model, the clinician will work with the child (age 0–5) who has experienced a traumatic event and primary caregiver to support and strengthen the relationship between them in order to restore the child’s sense of safety, attachment, and appropriate affect. CPP will also improve the child’s cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

All Hope Services, LLC treatment programs are developed and operationalized utilizing basic Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). All staff, regardless of service or position are required to attend a 24 hour Cognitive Behavioral Therapy training with the agency’s Clinical Operations Director within 90 days of hiring.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

In this model, the clinician will work with individuals age 16 and older to help them learn new ways to think about traumatic events by helping them to identify and change distressing thoughts related to the trauma.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Group Sessions (ages 14–17) focus on providing therapeutic techniques which will enhance self awareness and increase ability to center and focus within self. The techniques will enhance ability to regulate emotions and tolerate distress. Adolescents will learn how to enhance positive self image through a peer therapy group setting.

Eco-Systemic Structured Family Therapy (ESFT)

This model works with the entire family. By joining with the family the staff will help families understand unhealthy interactions and learn to interact with one another in healthy ways.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy, commonly known as EMDR, is a mental health therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. EMDR treats mental health conditions that happen because of memories from traumatic events in your past. It’s best known for its role in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but its use is expanding to include treatment of many other conditions. EMDR therapy doesn’t require talking in detail about a distressing issue. EMDR instead focuses on changing the emotions, thoughts or behaviors that result from a distressing experience (trauma).

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidenced based, real time, coached, behavioral parent training intervention for young children with emotional and behavioral disorders. The parent and child are seen together with an emphasis on restructuring interaction patterns in order to strengthen the bond between parent and child while also providing parents with appropriate discipline strategies.

Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS) (Group Therapy)

Group Sessions (age 12–21) focus on gaining coping strategies and teaching adolescents how to make choices mindfully even in the face of ongoing trauma and/or chronic stressors. Adolescents learn concrete steps to help them better manage the moment & make it more likely that they can get what they want and need when under stress and struggling with conflict in their relationships.
