Child Abuse Services

A multidisciplinary, specialized service that provides therapeutic and medical services to children who have experienced physical / sexual abuse and/or neglect.

In order to enhance bio-psycho-social health and well-being, the Child Abuse Services (CAS) has two streams:

Therapy Stream (Child Abuse Service):

  • assesses the impact of abuse and neglect on the referred child
  • provides therapeutic intervention to children and their caregivers to address emotional, behavioural and relational challenges associated with the abuse and neglect

Medical Stream (Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Team - SCAN):

A healthcare team that offers care to children who have been or are at risk for physical, sexual, or extreme neglect. The services that may be provided include:

  • consults
  • healthcare team assessment of the child who has been abused
  • phone consults with other healthcare providers (regarding abuse or suspected abuse)
  • referrals to other healthcare providers or agencies (as needed)
  • education to healthcare providers about child abuse
  • community child abuse prevention activities (e.g., resource development and distribution)
