The Be Brave Bridge Intensive is a comprehensive online program that connects specialized counsellors and coaches with children, teens and parents impacted by child sexual abuse who might not otherwise receive timely mental health support.
Every year Little Warriors’ Be Brave Ranch welcomes nearly 100 sexually abused children and teens from across Canada to receive intensive, specialized treatment for child sexual abuse. But with the number of kids waiting to receive support services, the need for additional support became very apparent. That is why we have developed the Be Brave Bridge.
The Be Brave Bridge Online Intensive Programs are for children, teens and families impacted by child sexual abuse to provide them with trauma-informed strategies, skills and tools.
The programs for children and adolescents offers a similar evidence-based, specialized trauma treatment that is provided at the Be Brave Ranch. We’ve taken the insights used at the Ranch and embedded them throughout the Be Brave Bridge Online Programs. All of the information and teachings provided have been carefully researched, and offer the most effective interventions and strategies.
The Parent/Caregiver Online Program supports families to better understand and address their children and teens who have been impacted by child sexual abuse through developing an effective trauma-informed parenting approach. Initial feedback from parents/caregivers has been very positive. Here’s what families/caregivers are saying:
“As a parent, I wish I had this information sooner…this should be available to everyone!”.
“I feel soooo much better able to cope and understand my child’s behavior…now we seem to be speaking the same language”.
“My child has benefitted from the in-person Be Brave intensive treatment program…this allows me to support them better, and I feel better as a parent. Thank you!”
Designed with significant input from many leading academic and clinical experts who specialize in child sexual abuse (see Our Team), the Be Brave Bridge Online Program helps children overcome the devastating effects of child sexual abuse, and change the trajectory of their lives.
