Prevention, assessment, and treatment of child abuse
Child abuse not only causes serious physical problems, but it can also cause lifelong psychological problems for children as they grow up. That’s why Maimonides offers services 24 hours a day for infants, children, and adolescents who may be suffering from abuse. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services.
We are committed to the prevention, assessment, and treatment of child abuse. Our service is led by a physician who is board-certified in child abuse – One of only a few hundred physicians with this board certification nationwide. Our team includes an outstanding multidisciplinary group of psychologists, social workers, coordinators, and Child Life specialists, all dedicated to providing the best care possible.
Treatments and services we offer
- Comprehensive counseling
- Creative art therapies
- Education and support services for children and families
- Inpatient and outpatient pediatric child abuse treatment
We believe in family-centered care, so education and support are provided to both child and family in a comfortable environment that reduces anxiety. By partnering with the family, we give them the understanding needed to continue caring for the child at home and in the future
