Baystate Medical Center, Therapy House Calls: Effective Treatment in the Home for Families Experiencing Trauma and Loss

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2009 - 2012]
Description: 
Therapy House Calls: Effective Treatment in the Home for Families Experiencing Trauma and Loss (House Calls) will improve access to and the quality of mental health care for children and families who are experiencing symptoms stemming from trauma or loss. The project will adapt Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for use in the In-Home Therapy (IHT) setting, which is a model of community-based mental health treatment in which patients receive intensive psychotherapy in their own homes. In addition to improving access, this adaptation will offer significant advantages for selected patients over the traditional outpatient TF-CBT by addressing the impact of trauma on the entire family unit. The treatment will then be disseminated through trainings and ongoing consultation. House Calls will serve children and adolescents aged 5–18 residing in Hampden and Hampshire counties. Objectives include: 1) training 24 IHT clinicians and their paraprofessionals in the adapted form of TF-CBT; 2) enrolling 120 children and their families in TF-CBT, 30 percent of whom will be military families; 3) gathering NCTSN-required data and appropriate clinical measures; 4) significantly reducing depressive, anxiety, PTSD, and behavioral symptoms in 90 percent of children and families completing therapy; 5) maintaining robust partnerships with partner agencies and community stakeholders; and 6) ensuring fidelity to the TF-CBT model.
