    Programs that identify, assess and provide individual, group or family counseling or other therapeutic services for children who have been exposed to domestic violence. The therapy helps children cope with their emotional reaction to the violence, reduce problematic symptoms/behaviors (e.g., nightmares, insomnia, aggressiveness, outbursts of anger, withdrawal), understand, to the extent they can, why their parents are fighting and be reassured that it is not their fault. Children who are not ready to discuss what they have witnessed may be asked to use drawing of their family or their home, play with dolls or engage in other activities as a way of expressing what they are unable to say. Therapists also work to help the family create a safe and stable environment that will support the child’s ability to heal. Specific therapeutic approaches will vary depending on the child's age, their level of traumatization and other factors. Treatment may involve consultation with the child's school or contacts with pediatricians, attorneys or other providers involved with the family.

    Youth Programs - Bright Future FoundationDomestic Violence and Sexual Assault is not restricted to adults. Often children and teens are also victims of the violence in their household and need services independent of their parents. Bright Future Foundation offers case management, counseling, mentoring, and care to youth clients as well as adults. Youth involved within our programs also discuss important topics such as Healthy Dating Habits and Healthy Living. Each youth is matched with a Advocate Case Manager to create a Plan of Care. In this process, the youth and the case manager side-by-side discuss the youth's background, their dreams, their strengths, and their growing edges. Through this process, the youth identifies goals they would like to achieve and create a time line to complete them. The Advocate Case Manager gathers community collaborators who may be able to help the youth achieve some of their goals.
