Children of all ages can be impacted by trauma or negative experiences such as a car accident, medical procedures or family violence. Such incidents can profoundly affect brain development, especially in a child under three.

Children who have experienced or witnessed trauma, those who have not bonded with their caregivers, or those with acting-out behaviors can all be successfully treated. At Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska, our therapists specialize in treating children of all ages and their families. Therapy is provided for those experiencing behavioral or mental health issues, substance use concerns, and trauma-related issues with specific programming related to those impacted by child sexual abuse.

All therapists are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and services are geared towards helping those impacted by trauma to heal and lead healthier lives.
