Woodward Community Based Services offers a variety of clinical and mental health services in outpatient settings. Our clinicians are trained in a multitude of different types of care models and therapies to serve individuals suffering from negative neurological, biological, psychological, and social impacts. We help maximize our clients’ strengths and support their efforts to lead healthy, thriving lives.
Clinical Programs & Services
This outpatient program offers creative, holistic, solution-based practices to children, adolescents, and adults who have a mental health diagnosis. We offer outpatient individual therapy, which is a clinical mental health service. We also offer outpatient group therapy upon request for both adolescents and adults.
School-Based Mental Health Programs
Woodward Community Based Services offers a school-based mental health program that provides onsite mental health services targeting students who are struggling with emotional and behavioral difficulties. We feel that school-based mental health programs are important in this environment to keep issues from affecting emotional, academic, or physical development.
Trauma-Informed Care (TIC)
Woodward Community Based Services provides trauma informed care for children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient, residential, and school-based settings. The individual may suffer from negative neurological, biological, psychological, and social impacts due to this trauma. Our clinicians are trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), an evidence-based treatment that research has shown improves the responses and symptoms of trauma, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
We use integrated art therapies as a powerful strength-based therapeutic approach to help individuals build self-confidence and an authentic self-identity by applying the principles of artistry, psychology, and the human experience.
Art therapy, as a therapeutic modality, involves visual and verbal processing that gives the therapist unique insight and amazing tools to reach the core issues. Individuals experience a wide variety of emotions (disappointments, frustrations, triumphs, and victories) and learn to overcome hurdles and improve their talent and skills. With each artistic advancement, individuals are able to transfer their new skills to help them in other areas of their lives.
Sexual Offender Treatment Program
This program is provided for males between the ages of 13 and 18 who have demonstrated sexually aggressive or inappropriate behaviors. The treatment focuses on victim empathy, healthy relationships, identifying and recognizing triggers, and relapse prevention. Assessment tools used by Woodward Community Based Services include polygraph testing, the JSORRAT-II and the J-SOAP-II.
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an empirically validated, adjunctive clinical treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. Developed at the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, TCTSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, and Neurosciences as well as Hatha Yoga practice with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.
How is TCTSY different from other types of yoga?
- The facilitator experience and extensive training in TCTSY practices. TCTSY helps to manage the symptoms of anxiety, acute stress, PTSD, and increases the capacity for healing, well-being, and health.
- Attention will be paid to the potential for feelings of vulnerability in certain yoga postures.
- The facilitator will continually offer options, allowing the individual to practice making empowered choices, opting in or out of any portion of the yoga postures at any time.
- TCTSY offers students the opportunity to rebuild a connection with oneself to help them feel safe in their bodies again.
