  • Overview

    The Child and Family Clinician leads a multi-disciplinary team in supporting children who are referred through social service, probation or mental health departments. The primary goal of our program is to provide children and families with services that will ensure safety, stability, and permanency. Seneca’s clinical practice model integrates attachment theory to build healthy relationships, learning theory to replace negative behaviors with positive ones, and systems theory to address environmental factors. 

     

    “My program stands out because of the amazing amount of expertise and generosity of all of my coworkers. My clients are some of the most inspiring and resilient humans, and their small progresses, as well as my privilege at being a small part of their lives, make it all worth it.” - Seneca Employee, Child and Family Clinician
