Sexual Abuse Treatment:

Sexual Abuse Treatment Program
Our Sexual Abuse Treatment Program provides specialized out-client services for families coping with trauma involving sexual abuse or sexual assault.

 

In our program, we focus on:

  • remediating the trauma of sexual abuse or assault,
  • preventing future offences, and
  • supporting family members when sexual abuse amongst siblings has occurred.

 

Who is eligible for this program?
We treat children under 18 years of age living in the Region of Peel, who have been victims of sexual abuse or sexual assault.

 

We also help

  • children under 18 years of age who exhibit sexualized behaviours,
  • adolescents who have committed sexual abuse, and
  • families in which sexual abuse amongst siblings has occurred.

 

What do we do?
Our clinical services include consultations, assessments, treatments, and reviews.

 

When referred to our program, all children/youth are offered a consultation appointment. These consultations focus on safety planning, assessing the need for priorization, describing the treatment process, and identifying other supports that may help while the child/youth is waiting for treatment to begin.

 

Assessments are psychometrically validated and may include a trauma assessment, sexualized behaviour assessment, offence-specific assessment, and risk assessment.

 

We treat clients using a combination of individual, group, and family counselling. Empirically based interventions, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, are provided for all clients of the program.

 

After the completion of our treatment program, families are reminded that, should these issues resurface in the future, they are welcome to recommence their treatment process with Peel Children's Centre.
