That is so much for a child to handle. I'm very sorry she and your family go through this. Her experiences sound traumatic and the anxiety and separation anxiety sound completely understandable. She's very young, still, and I'm not completely surprised her cbt did not 'take' yet. Those skills might resurface in a couple of years. What I'd like to mention is the value of good play therapy for a child her age. Have you tried that. I believe it can be very effective with trauma and other ongoing stressful situations.

I'm not sure I understand completely, but from what you say, the pediatric psychiatrist sounds like a horse's ass. I'm not sure how resource rich your area is, but in my town, resources are kinda here, but darn take so much digging to get to. I'd have thought everyone would know everyone else and be able to refer. Nope. So I hope someone new will turn up. If, for instance, you try play/sand therapy (if you haven't already), that might yield new referrals.

You and your girl are really up against some difficult stuff, and I'm so sorry your child feels afraid. Sending warm hugs and wishing you continued courage.
