C.A.S.E. Therapist Spotlight

Carroll Martin, LCSW, is being featured this month in C.A.S.E.'s Therapist Spotlight. Be sure to check out her full answer on our website.

Q:How do you work with children/teens and their families when there is a history of sexual abuse? 

A:The most important goal I have in treating youth who have a history of sexual abuse is to focus on promoting the sense of safety: safety of their bodies, safety in their home, safety in relationships. Children and teens who have experienced sexual abuse have had their sense of safety violated, and it is most often by people who they trusted and who were supposed to protect them. 

I work with foster and adoptive parents to help normalize many of the sexualized behaviors they might see at home and understand what is developmentally appropriate and what may be a response to the trauma their children or teens have experienced.

Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

Did you know there are creative ways to support C.A.S.E., so that you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time?

These giving techniques, called "planned gifts", create win-win solutions for you and C.A.S.E. through thoughtful planning.

“In a very deep sense, our family was blessed through our experience with C.A.S.E. We

decided to include a gift to C.A.S.E. in our estate plan, so other adoptive families may

receive the same blessings.”

-Phil and Meri Gibbs
