The Children’s Place

June 20, 2019

The Children’s Place is committed to meeting the developmental and mental health needs of the very youngest survivors of abuse, neglect, and other trauma. Within the Kansas City community and beyond, the agency’s specialized expertise in working with traumatized young children has made The Children’s Place a recognized leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect.

The Children’s Place will incorporate the SSIC materials in their interaction and treatment of children and families receiving services by:

  • Introducing SSIC to all Day Treatment and Counseling staff to the SSIC materials and planning sessions that will be scheduled to discuss implementation.
  • Training all agency staff on three ways to utilize SSIC in their interactions with community members.
  • Sharing SSIC resources with the families served by The Children’s Place.
