Research is indicating that, after almost ten years of war, children and families of active U.S. military personnel and veterans are being impacted. As a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)/Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), more active duty and reservists experience multiple deployments. Their children and families face various stressors prior, during, and after the deployment. In addition, children of military families may experience intense grief reactions to the death of a parent or loved one, especially if it was sudden or traumatic.

Friendship House is able to meet the needs of these families by providing support and services, along with encouraging resiliency.

Our therapists use a combination of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Preschool PTSD therapy model to explore the child’s feelings and begin the journey of healing and hope.

In addition, we offer Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), which is an evidence based treatment that focuses on enhancing and improving the parent child relationship.

Referrals can be made to the admissions department.
