Therapy at the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is provided through the Child Abuse Service, Alberta Health Services. A child, youth and family can access therapy services directly and do not have to be involved in an active investigation of child abuse. Individual, family and group therapy is available and determination of what type of therapy is received is based on the needs of the child and family following the intake process.

Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre Victim Support Program
Supporting children, youth and families throughout their experience with the CAC is a core service provided through the Centre. Victim Support Program will ensure every family who connects with the CAC receives the support they require for as long as needed.
