Child Victim Services (VOCA)

The Victim of Crime Assistance Program (VOCA) helps children deal with the emotional aftermath of witnessing or being a victim of a criminal act, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, witness to domestic violence, and secondary victims of homicide. In addition to therapeutic treatment, children are aided in obtaining information, community services, and financial compensation.

Evidence-Based Treatments

In addition to our outpatient treatment services, Wellmore has teams dedicated to providing evidence-based interventions. These include:

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

    • TF-CBT is designed to decrease the symptoms which frequently interfere in the healthy functioning of a child who has experienced significant trauma or loss.

  • Attachment, Regulation and Competency Model (ARC)

    •  A framework is a flexible, component-based intervention developed for children and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma, along with their caregiving systems. ARC’s foundation is built upon four key areas of study: normative childhood development, traumatic stress, attachment, and risk and resilience.  Drawing from these areas, ARC identifies important childhood skills and competencies which are routinely shown to be negatively affected by traumatic stress and by attachment disruptions, and which – when addressed – predict a resilient outcome. ​

  • Modular Approach to Therapy for Children (MATCH) 

    • MATCH combines 33 evidence-based procedures into a single, flexible system to treat childhood anxiety, depression, trauma, and conduct problems.

Psychiatric Services

Our team of dedicated doctors and advanced practice psychiatric nurses can provide psychiatric evaluation, consultation, and medication therapy to clients who might benefit from medication to enhance their treatment success.
