At Boston Child Study Center in Portland, Maine, we offer evidence-based trauma treatment for children, adolescents, young adults, and adults of diverse backgrounds. We recognize that trauma can take many forms. Our team has experience treating physical abuse, emotional abuse/neglect, sexual abuse/assault, exposure to domestic violence, intergenerational trauma, and racial trauma, as well as trauma-related issues among refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants. In assessment and treatment, we pay attention to the complex interplay between traumatic experiences, recovery and cultural factors.
Our clinicians provide a number of evidence-based treatments designed to help individuals effectively reduce their symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In addition, we offer services for caregivers of individuals engaging in trauma treatment at BCSC. Consultation with our clinicians can help determine which treatment approach may be the best fit for each individual. The evidence-based treatments that we provide include:
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for PTSD (DBT-PTSD)
- DBT Prolonged Exposure Protocol (DBT-PE)
- Prolonged Exposure (PE)
- Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
- Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
- Problematic Sexual Behavior Cognitive Behavior Therapy (PSB-CBT)
