Trauma Treatment and Supportive Services

The TTSS program provides Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to children and families that have witnessed domestic violence. TF-CBT is recognized as being one of the most effective interventions for children who have significant psychological symptoms related to trauma exposure. The program aims to decrease clinical symptoms of PTSD in children and families and provide a safe, secure, environment for children and families to process through trauma. In addition, our program provides groups and "family fun" activities for both children and caregivers to enhance social support, provide psychoeducation, and create a network of extended support while working through other life challenges.


  • Children within the ages of 3-18 who have been exposed to and remember a traumatic domestic violence event and are exhibiting symptoms related to trauma.
  • Residents of Hudson County
  • Referrals can come from DCPP, Women Rising or self-referral
For more information about the program and/or referrals, please contact Yokasta Duran at 201-798-2001.
