bigstock_Childs_Cry_For_Help_21361421Child Haven’s clinical staff is qualified and capable of treating multiple and co-occurring types of trauma, attachment disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders and other social and emotional health issues of children ages birth – 21 years of age, while recognizing and appreciating the diverse and cultural needs of child and family.  The interdisciplinary, multi-systemic team approach used at Child Haven addresses the needs of each individual client.  The staff has the expertise and capacity to provide a full range of mental health services supporting the child/adolescent and family using Evidence-Based Practices and developmental services for children ages’ birth to 3 and their families.

At Child Haven, we believe that early intervention, education, and targeted professional services help the psychological wounds of children heal and strengthens families.  The agency’s clinical philosophy is that a child cannot be served optimally in isolation of his or her family environment, as the most effective progress is seen when the needs of the entire family are considered in the treatment goals of the child and adolescent.  Child Haven firmly believes that by incorporating the families of traumatized children into treatment, the child’s healing process has more immediate results and is fortified ensuring greater long-term benefits.

Below are different treatments and services that we provide to our clients.

Supervised Visitation

In 2010 Child Haven partnered with the Office of Family Violence Prevention, Lift 3 Support Group, and the Solano County Courts to provide court-ordered supervised visitation.  The Safe Harbor Center provides a safe, structured environment for conducting visitation, and later this year, exchanges of children that promotes healthy relationships and prevents both physical and psychological harm to the child.  In cases of domestic violence, the courts usually allows both parents some degree of contact with their children.  Unless it is supervised, harmful consequences are likely to take place.
