Latin American Youth Center
LAYC’s Behavioral Health Treatment Team uses various approaches. This includes the Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), including medication management, and other rehabilitation services. The TF-CBT approach is a systematic treatment approach grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy. It is developed for children/youth that have experienced trauma and are exhibiting symptoms that may have a profound and long-lasting negative impact on their daily functioning, health, and safety. CBI Services are time-limited, intensive mental health services delivered to youth who have a history of involvement with Child Protective Services or Juvenile Court, a history of negative involvement with schools due to behavioral issues, or are at risk of out-of-home placement due to negative behavior or emotional challenges.
