CVTC can help in a crisis. Our state certified Volunteer Rape Crisis and Domestic Violence Advocates are available to help survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence who visit any of our three Emergency Departments during overnight hours and on weekends. They are trained to provide crisis counseling, criminal justice advocacy, assistance with filing claims for reimbursement with the New York State Office of Victims Services, shelter placement and many other supportive services.
CVTC's licensed clinicians are experts in treating people who have suffered interpersonal trauma and violence. We know how to help with the symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). CVTC therapists can help you process what has happened, and will create a safe space that will allow you to heal.
CVTC also offers unique and tailored support groups for survivors of violent crime. We offer groups that help you learn about what you've experienced and the symptoms it's caused, to groups where you can tell the story of your trauma in a room with supportive people who have experienced similar things. It can be powerful.
