CASA CAMP Resources in Response to COVID-19

During this extraordinary time, our therapy teams at CASA are working hard to creatively meet the needs of our youth and families.

CASA is following recommended guidelines regarding physical distancing and mainly communicating over the telephone. Our therapy team continues to be passionate in helping youth, caregivers and their support systems to cope, learn, develop skills and grow.

 

We hope to enrich our telephone therapy sessions with visuals and handouts to better communicate new concepts, review key points and to enable our youth and families to continue the work at home. Your therapist may guide you to review specific resources for in session use or to practice between sessions.

  

Please follow the link below to access the resources. The folders are grouped into themes inside the folders there are resources specific to youth and or caregivers.

 

Please read these important notes before accessing your resource:​

  1. We ask that you use these resources for your personal use only and refrain from reproducing and distributing these resources.

  2. ​Some resources may not be as useful without the explanation and guidance from your therapy team. If you are interested in discussing a particular hand-out/resource that has yet to be discussed in session, please bring this up to your therapist in your telephone sessions and we will be happy to discuss further.
