KidsTLC is Impressive!

In 2019, KidsTLC became the very first Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Practice and Parenting (DDP)-certified residential treatment facility in the world. DDP is an internationally known approach to care that is based on relationships, attachment and connection. DDP helps KidsTLC understand, support and heal our children and families.

DDP certification for an organization requires all leadership staff to receive extensive training in relating with traumatized children—and all people—in a manner that generates safety and strength-based learning about self and others. DDP has truly become the golden fiber that weaves its way throughout all relationships on our campus!

“It just feels good to pull the weeds and see the flowers blooming!” This quote from a 10-year-old in KidsTLC’s psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF) resonates in an abundance of ways! The kids are doing a great job of tending to the campus gardens and also removing the weeds that cloud their emotional wellbeing!
