The LCCB Crisis and Psychotrauma Center was originally launched last December 8, 2016 and is considered as the first and only psychotrauma center in Negros. Spearheaded by Dr. Johnny B. Decatoria and Dr. Romela R. Aujero under the leadership of Sr. Maria A. Garcia, OSA, CPTC has grown from a mere idea to an act of service of the community to the people of Negros through the efforts of its volunteers and mental health professionals.
In the words of our founder, Dr. Johnny Decatoria: “The logo, which presents the face of a mother, signifies that the CPTC continuously strives to provide compassionate care and love to the people who are devastated or broken by the unwelcomed events in life.” Furthermore, it also symbolizes the unwavering commitment of the volunteers into this selfless work of healing and recovery.
As CPTC reopens its doors to serve more people in need, it continues to accommodate individual clients through assessment and psychotherapy. Moreover, it also strives to reach communities through outreach services which include psychoeducation and psychosocial processing. Going closer to home, the CPTC also nurtures its own volunteers through training, certification programs, workshops, and mentorship under the guidance of senior consultants.
Through the years and despite several challenges and even a pandemic, the CPTC strives to continue its mission to be a nurturing mother to the people of Negros.
