The Path to Healing
CII’s Clinical Services counteract trauma and support recovery through mental health assessments and treatment, child welfare services, foster care and adoption services, and sexual abuse treatment, with a focus on evidence-based practices. Our services are “trauma-informed,” recognizing that many emotional and behavioral difficulties are directly traceable to traumatic experiences.
The study found that CII’s comprehensive model contrasts with the often fragmented child welfare system, and that nearly all clients receiving the agency’s clinical services also participate in other CII services, which is a stated goal of the organization’s integrated service approach. With nearly a third of CII’s clinical clients receiving an evidence-based practice, the study also confirms CII’s leadership in providing these state-of-the-art services, given that only two percent of youth receive care that is evidence-based through California’s county mental health plans.
