About Project Intersect
THERAPY FOR YOUTH AND FAMILIES
Project Intersect provides outpatient therapy services at the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy to youth who have been Commercially Sexually Exploited. We utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) as our intervention framework. TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment that has been found to be particularly effective with sexually abused and traumatized children and adolescents and has been used successfully with Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC).

Project Intersect provides intensive TF-CBT training to therapists in Georgia currently serving or interested in serving clients who have been commercially sexually exploited. There are two levels of training:
Foundations Trainings provide intensive training in basic TF-CBT. This training is for therapists who may have only limited familiarity with TF-CBT or even more knowledge and experience but have not completed prior TF-CBT training and consultation with a certified trainer.
Keystones Trainings provide intensive training in CSEC-specific applications of TF-CBT with youth and their families who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation. This training is for experienced TF-CBT therapists.

SYSTEM TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Project Intersect is actively engaged with systems, community organizations and caregivers who provide services and ongoing care and support to youth who have been commercially sexually exploited, or who are at risk of exploitation. The goal is to create more trauma-informed systems through training, ongoing support and consultation and promoting culture change within families and organizations.
The 3 areas of focus include:
- Juvenile Justice and Residential Treatment
- Foster Care
- Homeless and Runaway Youth Organizations
