LSCI is trauma-informed care in action! Alex Cameron, Director of Clinical Services, Pressley Ridge

LSCI’s Historical Roots

Did you know that the relationship-based, trauma-informed strategies of Life Space Crisis Intervention are deeply rooted in the work of some of our field’s greatest thinkers?  From Anna Freud, whose innovative theories revealed how young people manage anxieties to Fritz Redl and David Wineman who authored the groundbreaking text, Children Who Hate in 1951, LSCI’s way of understanding and helping children and adolescents is steeped in real-world experiences with some of the most challenging students in the nation.  Today, LSCI remains a comprehensive strategy, used world-wide to reach millions of young people in schools and treatment settings across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
