On behalf of the CASASC I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who participated in the success of ‘A Night at the Jubilee’. The $35,000 raised will be used for the construction of a new Children’s Play Therapy Centre. Servus Credit Union, Camdon Construction, Cobra Mortgages, RBC Dominion Securities and the many supporters throughout the community are to be commended for their tireless efforts, time, and contributions to make this event a huge success.
Background – The current wait time for children is 6-8 weeks, and 4-6 week for adults. Sexual Assault is a growing problem in Alberta, and few are aware of the services offered by the CASASC.
Play Therapy has proven to be the best way to treat children who have been sexually assaulted and / or sexually abused. Children heal and recover through play, often re-enacting experiences. These sessions, each 45 minutes to one hour long, take place in a children’s play area and the child works one on one with the CASASC Therapist. CASASC treats children ages 4 – 17. Written parental consent is required.
