Derby-Shelton Rotary supports PCRC program
SHELTON - The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club Thursday presented the Parent Child Resource Center with a check for $3,500 to support the Center’s Adolescent TRECC Program.
The TRECC (Training in Relationships and Emotional Competency for Children) Program focuses on children who are having difficulty meeting school, family or social expectations due to serious behavioral and social disturbances.
TRECC includes group therapy, family therapy, and art and drama therapies. PCRC’s TRECC program operates after school, three hours per day, five days per week.
Included are three separate age groups including the adolescent group, which the members have named the Teen Titans.
Common problems addressed in the adolescent group include depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, school avoidance, trauma, healthy relationships and parent child relational problems.
The funds from the Derby-Shelton Rotary Club will help pay for Parent Child Resource Center staff and program supplies for the adolescent group from April through June, 2014.
“We truly appreciate the ongoing support of the Derby-Shelton Rotary Club,” said the Center’s CEO Michael Wynne.
“Treating mental health problems in children can help save lives and restore hope for the children and their families.”
