PCRC clinicians and paraprofessionals look for ways to focus on and nurture clients’ strengths. Despite hardships they face on a personal level, it is their strength and spirit that allows them to trust in others in times of crisis. When children and youth confront problems such as depression, extreme anxiety, abuse, neglect and abandonment, and other types of trauma, they often are unable to recognize their strengths. Emotions often become overwhelmingly big and behavioral control can easily be lost. As these emotions and behaviors occur, we ask children and families to believe that they can get better. This is hard work, but at the heart of our work at the Parent Child Resource Center is our belief in the possibility of getting better.
