Treatment Models

At Crittenton we use promising practices and evidence-based therapies that are trauma-responsive, facilitating the delivery of 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 address complex trauma for individuals, along with their care-giving systems.

Trauma Recovery & Empowerment Model

is an evidence-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

are trauma-informed, family-based, and designed to prevent as well as treat child abuse and neglect. This is accomplished by teaching positive and 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.
