Counseling, or therapy, involves a collaborative relationship between a therapist and an individual, family, or group, with the goal of problem resolution. The approach varies according to the client needs. The intent is to help the client or family change behavior or make decisions that will improve the quality of their life. Therapy is usually provided in a private office setting.
Some of our therapy services are evidence-informed or evidence-based. The term evidence-informed is used to design programs and activities using evidence to identify potential benefits, harm and also acknowledging that what works in one context may not work in another. The term evidence-based treatment (EBT), evidence-based practice (EBP) or empirically-supported treatment (EST) refers to preferential use of mental and behavioral health interventions for which systematic empirical research has provided evidence of statistically significant effectiveness as treatments for specific problems. Child Focus, Inc. is proud to offer the following evidenced-informed or evidence-based treatments.
