Family Therapy

Clients participate in family therapy on a continuous, as needed basis. KYS has implemented the Trauma Focused –Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) model. This model addresses multiple domains of trauma impact. With consideration of the client’s safety and developmental needs, the treatment is family-driven with both the client and the family included in all aspects of care, if in the best interest of the client. The key components of family-centered treatment are as follows:

  • Facilitation of regular contact between the client and other members of the family (including siblings)
  • Actively involving and supporting families who have a client placed at KYS
  • Provide outreach, ongoing support and aftercare for the client and the family
