Through contracts from the Orange County Health Care Agency/Behavioral Health Division, Social Services Agency, outside funders, and community support, CGC provides in-depth counseling programs that include individual, family and group counseling; trauma-focused cognitive behavior treatment/psychological testing; PEERS group treatment; psychiatric evaluation and medication support. CGC is also involved with community research involving childhood obesity.
PCIT is an innovative, evidence-based approach to treating parents along with their young child(ren), ages 2-10. A therapist standing behind a one-way mirror coaches the parent wearing a wireless earphone on specific ways of relating to, or managing the child's behavior "at the moment."
Since 2010, of the 2500+ children and families treated at CGC each year, 10% identify as veteran- or military-connected. In response, CGC's SFSC Program extends treatment to affected children and families of veterans, active duty, reserve, National Guard and fallen. Notably, in addition to specialized training to serve these families, CGC employs SFSC staff with lived military experience for outreach, engagement and treatment services.
