The Childcare Center 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.
To empower children (0-5) years old and the childcare community to thrive socially and emotionally through onsite early intervention and quality preventive mental health services and education for those professionals who serve the community
