Support Services

The Treatment and Rehabilitation Program is CRC's core program through which psychosocial aid is primarily delivered. It is a system of client handling and monitoring: from case intake to case termination. Within this system, needs and responses are determined from clients and collectively discussed among caseworkers. Children's activities provide a venue where children can enhance their abilities to cope with their psychosocial problems, at the same time learn productive skills. Most of the activities primarily include play- and art-oriented therapy. The goals of these activities range from the free expression of the repressed emotions that accompany the traumatic experience to building up trust in oneself and others. Learning basic concepts in various academic fields, topics on children's rights, the environment and other social issues, are also incorporated in the activities. The program also includes counseling sessions with the parents as well as regular therapeutic interaction with the families in the home. Quick reaction teams are occasionally formed to respond to immediate requests for short-term psycho-social aid in the form of medical and mercy missions in militarized areas, as well as relief and rehabilitation operations for selected natural disaster stricken areas.
