Forensic Interviews

Interviewers conduct forensic interviews with children between the ages of 3-17 years who are victims of sexual assault, physical abuse, or are witnesses to domestic violence, crimes, or violence towards others. This service keeps the children out of the uncomfortable, sometimes hostile interview room of local law enforcement, and in a more child-friendly environment.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Victims of crime and abuse

The Gateway Center provides guidance including exam accompaniment, victim compensation, multi-system responses to crimes, and additional resources to familiarize victims with what to expect and ensure that they are not abandoned during any phase after their assault.

Caregivers

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents, and Non-Offending Caregivers who have been impacted by trauma. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences. Therapy is conducted in a safe setting in which the counseling professional takes a combined trauma-focused and strength-based approach to therapeutic services. Identifying positive truths about self and exploring strengths in the midst of trauma has been said to diminish the appearance of post-traumatic stress disorder. Using narrative and solution-focused therapy in conjunction with trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy allows adults to work with a professional to navigate the challenges of trauma with a focus on the power of the future.

Caregivers

Group Therapy is an exciting component of The Gateway Center that offers youth and adults extra support after the experience of a crisis such as sexual assault or domestic violence. In group therapy clients get to interact with others sharing similar stories and can use techniques and tools gained from individual therapy to guide others. Participants are led by counseling professionals through activities that will allow them to explore deeper parts of self that may have gone unnoticed in the midst of trauma. Using strength-based approaches such as narrative therapy and mindfulness, participants will work through barriers as a group as well as gain access to additional supportive resources internally and externally.
