Clinical Services for Children and Young People
A core aspect of STARTTS’ approach to assisting children and young people to overcome the impact of trauma is through providing counselling and psychotherapy. This is provided at STARTTS offices and also in schools and other outreach locations such as youth services when appropriate.
These interventions utilise different approaches including play therapy, sand tray, music and art therapy, and are provided to a range of age groups from infants to adolescents and includes work with parents.
A range of group work interventions are also provided including the innovative Jungle Tracks program which uses storytelling to help children work through their trauma experience.
