At Promise House we focus on utilizing evidence-based treatments to better serve our youth. We operate from a trauma-informed approach to understand the impact trauma has on our brain. Many of our clients are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We work to identify where they are on their journey and to determine the best course of action. Our counselors are trained in various best practices for trauma for survivors.
ACEs: All of our clients complete an ACE Questionnaire as part of our intake process. This questionnaire helps inform the risks of having physical and emotional struggles later in life.
Coping Scales: Our customized coping scales assessments were developed to gauge how each child is uniquely adjusting to their current environment and stressors. At Promise House, we know that children can respond differently to the same traumatic experience.
Trauma Inventories: For clients who are able to engage in long-term treatment (transitional living and community counseling), we provide more comprehensive assessment tools to capture a deepr picture of their struggles and identify treatment possibilities.
