Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Community & Neighborhood Development, Economic Development, Education, Mental Health, Mental Health Treatment

Mission:

Center for Child Counseling strives to strengthen and empower children and families through prevention, early intervention, and treatment services that support their social-emotional wellness and growth.

Target demographics: at-risk children and their caregivers fulfill their potential as productive, caring and resilient members of the community.

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 750 children and their caregivers.

Geographic areas served: Palm Beach County

Programs:

   The Childcare and Community Social-Emotional Wellness program (CCSEW) provides (at no cost): play therapy for children; training for teachers,  parents and "natural helpers"; parent-child therapy, and psychotherapy for adults in subsidized childcare centers. CCSEW initially provides intensive comprehensive services (40 hours per week) -- then gradually reduces services after the community becomes healthier and better able to support the children. Services onsite at childcare centers encourage participation. CCSEW contains built-in program monitoring and evaluation using pre and post tests (measuring therapy and workshop outcomes) to insure continuing program accountability, thereby shaping the program to meet the community's needs.   This program is cost effective because of the utilization of trained master level interns and  volunteers equaling approximately $600,000 per year.

Being an Intern at the Center for Child Counseling has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening learning experiences I have ever encountered. I can honestly say that after spending a year working and growing with the Center, I have never known a group of individuals as dedicated, knowledgable, and passionate as those who work and serve at the Center for Child Counseling. With their team of go-getters and exceptional interns, It is no wonder the Center has grown so much and impacted so many in such a short period of time!

My internship experience at the Center for Child Counseling was more than I had imagined it to be. The staff, therapists, and fellow interns were extremely supportive throughout my time there. Their knowledge and influence impacted me and allowed me to grow into a more confident worker. Most importantly, they’re passionate about the children and families they serve. Every day was a positive learning experience. I am fortunate to have landed an amazing internship at the center and even more fortunate to be asked to join the team as an independent contract therapist. Thank you to all that made my experience a memorable one. I look forward to a successful journey with each one of you!

I had an incredible educational experience interning at the Center for Child Counseling. Training for the program was amazing and the staff was as supportive as they could possibly be. Every employee there cares deeply about the clients they serve and the organization works diligently to help the children in our community. I could have have asked for a more positive and transformative intern experience.

I had a wonderful internship experience at the Center for Child Counseling. They are thorough in training and supervising their interns. I was never hesitant to ask for help and made some great friends with other interns along the way. I received great clinical experience which I will use throughout my career. Thank you to the Center for Child Counseling for taking pride in their interns just as much as you take pride in your clients!
