Healthy Boundries/Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Program
In the early 1980’s, TYSB recognized there was a lack of available resources for families impacted by sexual abuse, and began developing a strong treatment program that is now available throughout Tulare County. With sites located in Tulare, Visalia, Earlimart, Porterville, Lindsay, Exeter, Woodlake, and Dinuba, TYSB offers a highly dedicated group of therapists, specifically trained in the best practices of Trauma Focused - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). TYSB’s Healthy Boundaries program provides individual, family and group therapies for child victims, their non-offending caregivers and other family members struggling with the impact the abuse has had on the victim and family. Additionally, under this program TYSB has the only Adolescent Sexual Responsibility Program (ASRP) in the County to provide treatment for minors who have engaged in inappropriate sexual behaviors.
