Our Mission Statement:  "The Family Learning Program is dedicated to providing best practice psychological services to improve the lives of children, adolescents and families who have experienced neglect and/or abuse."

Vision and Values

The Family Learning Program's vision is to decrease child maltreatment in Brevard County through the following four core values:

Commmunity Awareness: We believe that increasing community awareness of child sexual abuse and other forms of child maltreatment reduces the stigma associated wtih abuse and its treatment, prevents child abuse through public education and increases access to treatment and services for victims and families.

Intervention: We believe that empirically supported and evidence-based intervention is effective in improving victim and family coping following abuse, reducing related negative effects and symptoms, and reducing risk of re-victimization.

Collaboration: We believe that active collaboration with community partners and other involved treatment and service providers is imperative to fully support victims and families and for effective delivery of sexual abuse treatment.

Prevention: We believe that preventing child sexual abuse and other forms of maltreatment is preferable to treating children and families to avoid the significant negative effects of abuse on the child and family. We promote community awareness in an effort to prevent new occurrences of child abuse and implement interventions and collaboration to prevent additional occurrences in children who have already experienced child sexual abuse or another form of child maltreatment.

Dependency Evaluation Team (DET)

Dependency evaluations are court-involved evaluations provided when a child has been removed from a parent/caregiver's care due to verified child maltreatment (neglect and/or abuse). Dependency and Pre-Adoptive evaluations are requested by involved agencies to determine the needs of the child and/or concerns and areas of relative strengths and weaknesses of the parent/caregiver to assist in determining appropriate recommendations and/or whether the child will be able to be returned to the parent/caregiver while maintaining the child's safety.
