An Important Training Journey
In a significant development, the Children’s Aid & Family Services‘ (CAFS) WISE Families program is embarking on a crucial training journey in Oklahoma. This training aims to enable the implementation of ‘Problematic Sexual Behaviors Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adolescents’, which will expand the program’s support services to individuals aged up to 18.

By embracing this training opportunity, the program is demonstrating its commitment to providing essential support and care to those who need it most.
The WISE Program: A Beacon of Hope
Developed by Dr. Barbara Bonner and her esteemed colleagues at Oklahoma University’s Center for Child Abuse and Neglect, the WISE program stands as an evidence-based initiative that offers comprehensive assistance to families with children aged 8 to 15. Through a holistic approach encompassing assessment, education, treatment, and prevention strategies, the program aims to address and mitigate the impact of problematic sexual behaviors on both children and their families.
Expanding Support: A Step Forward
With the implementation of ‘Problematic Sexual Behaviors Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adolescents’, the WISE program will now be able to extend its support services to individuals up to 18 years old.
