The Wyalusing Area School District has a trauma therapist provided by The Children's House through grant funds from the Bradford County Commissioner's that serve our district 1 - 2 days per week*.
The trauma therapist will provide intense trauma-focused therapy for students who have a severe and immediate need for this kind of counseling. Trauma therapists providing trauma-focused therapy will identify and emphasize the student's understanding of how the traumatic experience impacts the child's mental, behavioral, emotional, and physical health. By processing these emotions and thoughts, the goal is to enable the student to create a healthier and more meaningful life.
* Schedule may change throughout the academic year.
