There are many reasons for why it may be hard for a child to receive helpful mental health support. TICC's mission is to decrease as many barriers to mental health support as possible, and we especially aim to do this for the children in our communities.

CBITS Intervention Approach
1-3 Solo Sessions
Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS)
CBITS aims to decrease behavioral challenges and symptoms from PTSD, depression, and anxiety while also supporting students in improving performance at school, home, and interpersonally with peers.
This trauma-informed school-based intervention is appropriate for students in grades 5-12 who are displaying behaviors or symptoms resulting from trauma. CBITS is conducted by a clinician.
If your are interested in learning more about CBITS, email us for more information!
Support for Students
Exposed to Trauma (SSET)
SSET also aims to decrease behavioral challenges and symptoms from PTSD, depression, and anxiety while also supporting students in improving performance at school, home, and interpersonally with peers. Whereas CBITS is conducted by a clinician, SSET can be conducted by teachers and nonclinical school counselors who are trained.
This trauma-informed school-based intervention is appropriate for students in grades 5-12 who are displaying behaviors or symptoms resulting from trauma.
If you would like to be contacted when SSET is available, email us and we will reconnect with you to provide this service!
Research on CBITS and SSET by
The Center for Safe & Resilient Schools and Workplaces
On the Success of CBITS Reducing Symptoms and Dysfunction: "Extensive research shows that students who participate in CBITS have significantly reduced symptoms of posttraumatic stress, depression, and psychosocial dysfunction" (The Center).
On the Successful Implementation of SSET by Teachers and Nonclinical Staff: "Students in the study showed small reductions in trauma symptoms, with those having high levels of symptoms before taking SSET benefiting the most. Both students and parents reported good-to-high satisfaction with the program. Teachers also reported small improvements in student behavior" (The Center).
