Lucy Daniels Center
September 18, 2011
I have been visiting the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood from the day of its groundbreaking ceremony on and it's fair to say that the Center has been doing groundbreakig work every since! As a psychiatrist who is also trained at a child analyst, I recognize the unique value that the Lucy Danierls Center brings to our community. First and foremost, it provides direct services to children and families of the highest quality in its pre-school programs. What makes the Lucy Daniels Preschool unique is that it offers children who simply might not make it anywhere else a chance to get back on a normal developmental path through the power of applied psychoanalytic work with the child and his/her family. The Center also offers the primier child evaluation program in the Triangle. It has always served as a beacon for troubled families by providing information and support in parenting and by developing a skilled community of families, clinicians and advocates all focused on raising healthy, happy children. I consider myself very lucky to be a part of the Lucy Daniels Center community and look forward to working with them in the future.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Helping children and their families understand their own emotional and developmental difficulties with clarity and compassion that enables them to overcome these heartwrenching problems in living. The Lucy Daniels Center is one of the few programs in our state that approaches significant human problems in human terms.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand its capacity to offer outpatient services to children and their families.
Professional with expertise in this field & I became inspired to work with children through the many team meetings and programs I have attended at the Center.
