General

  • Mission:
  • The ChildSafe mission is to:
    1. Repair the damage done to child sexual abuse victims and their families;
    2. Reduce the risk of revictimization; and
    3. Prevent the cycle of abuse from carrying over into future generations

  • History:
  • ChildSafe began its existence in 1986. At that time, there was little perpetrator accountability and no consistent way of providing treatment to victims. The criminal justice and child welfare systems had a very fragmented approach. This meant that many victims did not receive the treatment they sorely wanted and needed and many perpetrators were not prosecuted. Thus, the cycle of victimization was allowed to perpetuate itself. ChildSafe’s three founding therapists conducted much research about the best method of treatment for victims of child sexual abuse. Group therapy proved to be the most effective; there was no group treatment available to victims in northern Colorado at that time.

    ChildSafe began with the premise that all stakeholders should work together so that victims received needed treatment and perpetrators were held accountable. This multi-disciplinary approach was ahead of its time and made an immediate positive difference in our community’s response to the issue of child sexual abuse.

    In the intervening years, ChildSafe has remained on top of best practices methods of treatment. In the past year, all of ChildSafe’s therapists attended training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Not only is this extremely effective for victims of sexual abuse but for children who have endured any type of trauma. The United States Office of Justice Programs rates this type of treatment as one of the most effective forms of treatment is studied relating to crime victims.

    We began a comprehensive approach in 2009 that incorporates parenting classes, nutrition counseling and emphasis on regular physical activity. Parents play an extremely important role in their children’s abilities to heal. Lack of parenting skills often was impeding our clients’ progress. Parents simply didn’t know how to parent a child who had endured trauma. Some of our young clients exhibit clinginess, anger outbursts, depression, etc. Our parent therapy groups talk about some of those issues but we found that an actual parenting class would provide parents with the tools they needed to be the very best support for their children.

    The nutrition counseling and emphasis on physical activity arose out the fact that many of our clients have disordered thinking about food (eating too much, too little) and engaged in very little physical activity. We operate on the premise that a child who is healthy physically will heal emotionally much faster.
