Child and Adolescent Therapy - CHAT

CPI specializes in treatment of child abuse and trauma.  In keeping with our mission to end child abuse and strengthen the health of children, parents, and families, school-based Child and Adolescent Therapy (CHAT) services are available to serve victims of abuse and trauma. Funded by the California Office of Emergency Services, this program serves children and adolescents who otherwise may not have access to services they need to recover from adverse childhood experiences. Our multidisciplinary staff is committed to using effective, evidence-based and clinically informed treatments that have proven to be successful in helping children and parents learn new skills in responding to traumatic life events, improve family communication, manage behavior problems, and decrease risk for future harm. 

Your child or adolescent may qualify for CHAT funded services if they are victims of:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse or exploitation
  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect
  • Domestic or family violence (including high conflict divorce)
  • Child endangerment (including parental substance abuse)
  • Child abduction
  • School and community violence (including bullying)
  • Community hate crimes and acts of terrorism
