Living in a Nonviolent Community (LINC)
LINC provides clinical assessment and intervention for children birth to age 18 who have been exposed to domestic violence. Mental health clinicians work with the child or adolescent and family to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce the impact of violence on the child/adolescent. Children and youth who receive direct services have the opportunity to work through feelings associated with exposure to violence. Therapeutic goals include increasing feelings of personal safety, improving coping skills and improving the quality of life and level of functioning for children, adolescents, and their families.
Individual, group, and family counseling and clinical case management services are provided at UCSF Mount Zion Medical Center, Child Trauma Research Project and Child and Adolescent Services in the Department of Psychiatry at San Francisco General Hospital, or at specific sites in the community, depending on the needs of the child's family.
Services available at Mount Zion and SFGH.
