Each member organization is required to assign a contact person to be the liaison between the client and ASAP. The contact person is critical to the success of this program, as their role is to guide and support the client through therapy and ensure they are receiving the care they need. The contact person is someone who is in contact with the individual on a regular basis, who understands and is sensitive to their needs, and is committed to helping them move forward in life. This role requires approximately 1 hour a month per client.
To help organizations alleviate the cost of guiding and supporting their clients in the therapeutic process, 10% of the cost of therapy will be provided to referring organizations.
The ideal contact person is someone who:
Sexual abuse is a painful violation with severe and complex traumatic impact on the victim. In order to receive the optimal therapeutic treatment needed to help them heal, it is critical that victims who have been violated are treated by professionals with expertise in this field. Not every therapist is suitable for every client. For therapy to succeed, it is crucial that the therapist and client are a suitable match, and that the therapist has the knowledge and skills to address the clients’ needs.
ASAP supports evidence based trauma-focused therapy only. Only therapists who meet the following criteria will be funded. Please take this in to account before making a referral.
