SITCAP® (Structured Sensory Interventions for Children, Adolescents and Parents) is the model that TLC’s evidence-based trauma intervention programs, SITCAP-ART and I Feel Better Now! follow. The premise of this approach is that traumatic memories are experienced at a sensory level and must be reactivated in a safe environment in order to be tolerated and managed with a sense of power and a feeling of safety. Treatment includes a series of drawing tasks and specific questions that target the sensations which are most often experienced in a traumatic event (e.g., terror, fear, worry).


Prepare/Enrich is a personalized, structured approach to couples therapy, including premarital counseling. During 3 sessions with their clinician, a couple gains insight into their unique relationship, builds on current strengths, and learns skills they can immediately practice to keep growing together.

Each partner independently completes the Prepare/Enrich Online Couple Assessment Inventory, and then meets with their clinician for feedback specific to their relationship. Couples and their clinician will discuss what the inventory revealed, and will learn skills tailored to their unique strengths and challenges.

Prepare/Enrich is designed to help couples that are dating, engaged, or married. The approach will support couples to:

  • Explore their strength and growth areas
  • Strengthen communication skills
  • Identify and manage major stressors
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Develop a more balanced relationship
  • Understand personality differences between partners to maximize teamwork

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

 Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a specific type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that has been effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD that have developed after experiencing a variety of traumatic events.

CPT is generally delivered over 12 sessions with out-of-session practice assignments.  CPT helps clients learn how to challenge and modify unhelpful beliefs related to the trauma. In so doing, the client creates a new understanding and conceptualization of the traumatic event so that it reduces its ongoing negative effects on current life. Therapists assist the client to focus on safety, trust, power, control, esteem and intimacy as these are all areas that can be affected by traumatic experiences.

Clients develop skills to identify and address unhelpful thinking,  uses those skills to continue evaluating and modifying beliefs related to traumatic events. At this point, the therapist is helping the client develop the ability to use these adaptive strategies outside of treatment to improve overall functioning and quality of life. 

CPT is the #1 therapy supported by the VA.
