Psychosocial Trauma Support

Some experiences with illness, accidents, injuries, physical or sexual abuse can leave a lasting impact on children’s minds. While some are able to cope with the experience and move on, others and their families may benefit from psychosocial support and intervention.

In keeping with our philosophy of holistic care, we have a multidisciplinary team, comprising Psychiatrists, Medical Social Workers, Psychologists and Trauma Counsellors, who help patients and their families deal with the after-effects of a traumatic experience.

The service also works closely with paediatricians, other child mental health professionals, schools and community organisations to minimise trauma-related distress among children.

Range of Services:

  • Assessment of psychological impact following traumatic experiences (e.g. injury, traffic accident, assault, burns, near drowning, falls, traumatic grief, etc)
  • Specialised intervention for trauma related issues (e.g. traumatic stress symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks and new fears, phobias, depression, adjustment difficulties etc)
  • Collaboration with hospital services towards early identification of children with trauma symptoms, leading to early intervention
  • Training healthcare workers to provide trauma-informed care to minimise the effects of psychological trauma for children in hospital

For now, only internal referrals are accepted.
