EPIC Therapeutic Approach

4KIDS developed the EPIC Therapeutic Approach to uniquely teach parents, educators, and other community members how to tap into the power of trust-based relationships with kids.

“EPIC” is an acronym that makes it easy for caregivers to remember that to deepen their connection with a child or teen, they need to address their Emotional, Physical, Intellectual, and Character-based needs. Kids who have experienced any kind of abuse, neglect, or abandonment can especially benefit from having trusted adults in their life who use the EPIC Therapeutic Approach.
