Treatment Models

At Crittenton we use promising practices and evidence-based therapies that are trauma-responsive and deliver lasting and positive results. “Evidence-based” refers to therapies that have been rigorously tested and proven effective.

Treatment models are as follows:

Attachment, Self- Regulation, Competency Framework is a promising practice and framework with flexible components used to treat complex trauma for individuals along with their care-giving systems.

Trauma Recovery & Empowerment Model is an evidenced-based group-based intervention designed to facilitate trauma recovery among women with histories of exposure to sexual/physical abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and substance abuse.

Motivational Interviewing is a counseling approach that supports individuals in resolving feelings to motivate and adapt behaviors. MI is evidenced-based and used to address addiction and management of health/physical issues.

Nurturing Parenting Programs evidence-based programs are trauma-informed/family-based designed to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect by teaching positive/caring nurturing skills.

Seeking Safety is a therapeutic model designed to support women who are dually diagnosed with PTSD and Substance Use Disorder. Seeking Safety is an evidence-based, present-focused counseling model to help people attain safety from trauma and/or substance abuse.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidenced-based intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
