Trauma Counseling and Crisis Response
Crime and violence have a significant emotional effect on its victims. What may seem like an "insignificant" experience can, for some, be life changing. Some experiences with crime or violence occur on top of former emotional wounds, making it more difficult to adapt to trauma. It is important for victims to know they are not alone and that the feelings, behaviors and physical symptoms they are experiencing are not uncommon.
CVC provides counseling to victims and their families through individual, family and group sessions designed to address the underlying causes of trauma and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Victims discover their own strength through guided sessions, building upon their own resilience to discover the best ways of establishing a "new normal" following crime.
