The clinicians we partner with are passionate about providing children and their families with mental health treatment amidst their traumatic experiences. One example includes creating a space that the child can feel physically comfortable in. The clinicians allow the child to choose where they would like to sit, play with toys and provide a physically comfortable spot. They educate the child and provide them with crisis management. This physical comfortability includes working on relaxation and mindfulness techniques which they can utilize both inside and outside their therapy sessions.
“The most important thing is that a client relationship is formed and that everything else is left outside. We need to be a safe space for the client.” – Raysa Florentino, Clifford Beers Clinic
