NICU Healing is an online therapeutic resource designed for families currently in the NICU, recently released from the hospital, or coping with the residual effects of the trauma they experienced in having a preterm or medically complex infant. This site offers parents and family members access to free tips, educational materials and resources, as well as a brief (8 week), for-pay individual and couples therapy program designed to help parents to cope with the trauma, anxiety and depression that can be triggered by the NICU experience, heal the damage that this trauma can wreak on a partnership, and to understand, solidify and strengthen parents’ attachment with their baby. NICU Healing also offers an eight hour staff training for NICU staffs and peer mentor program staffs to integrate trauma-informed care into their programs.
