University of California, Davis, UC Davis - PCIT Training Center

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012]
Description: 
The UC Davis–PCIT Training Center project will further the dissemination of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) by developing and testing a web course (PCITWeb) designed to inform professionals who may want to acquire and/or enhance PCIT skill involvement. The center will also develop a Learning Collaborative that focuses on the use of PCIT with young traumatized children and their families, and will create several products to enhance and support clinicians’ use of PCIT in a broad range of settings (e.g., community mental health centers, private practice, and in-home services). Three pathways will be used to disseminate knowledge and skills related to the application of PCIT: 1) the creation of a 10-hour culturally competent web course for mental health providers who serve traumatized children and their families; 2) enrollment of 10 agencies in PCIT Competency Achievement Training to deliver PCIT services and train staff at these agencies to use the 10-hour web courses in their communities; and 3) development of PCIT products that will support the effective use of PCIT. These objectives will be achieved through extensive collaboration with NCTSN members, and will include formation of a PCIT Learning Collaborative, a PCIT Workgroup, and a PCIT Family Consumer group.

University of California, San Francisco, Early Trauma Treatment Network

Funding Period: 
[2016 -2021, 2012 -2016, 2009 - 2012, 2005 - 2009 and 2001 - 2005]
Description: 
The Early Trauma Treatment Network (ETTN): Raising the Standard of Care for Young Children 0–5 will address the needs of traumatized young children and preschoolers by raising their standard of care and by enabling increased access to evidence-based trauma treatment for them. ETTN will work to build early trauma competence in the systems serving these children. Statistically, young children and preschoolers have a higher exposure to trauma; and they are the most defenseless due to developmental vulnerability, and dependency on parents and/or caregivers. ETTN will: 1) address training and service gaps by engaging in activities that promote workforce development; 2) create culturally competent products, resources, and training protocols; and 3) build mechanisms for collaboration across the mental health, pediatric care, early childhood education, early intervention, child welfare, judicial, and military systems. ETTN is a collaborative of four national programs. All ETTN sites will provide training in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), a manualized, evidence-based intervention for young children. To improve access to services and to raise the standard of care for traumatized young children and preschoolers, ETTN will build training infrastructure and conduct five Learning Collaboratives with NCTSN Centers and community-based programs—focusing on American Indian providers, military family providers, distance learning technologies, Train-the-Trainer Learning Collaboratives to increase CPP capacity in training and supervision, and national Learning Collaboratives with tracks for Spanish-speaking providers. Additionally, ETTN will create educational and training materials for parents, childcare providers, and service providers for military families; and will collaborate with the NCCTS and with NCTSN Centers in cross-site evaluation, training, and dissemination. Over the course of the grant, ETTN will provide training related to early childhood trauma to 40,000+ service providers and CPP training to a minimum of 480 mental health practitioners.

The program expects to provide mental health services to 1,540 children/families and training to 760 professionals throughout the Western Mountain region.

University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Center for Trauma Recovery and Juvenile Justice

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021 and 2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The Center for Trauma Recovery and Juvenile Justice (CTRJJ) brings together national leaders in the child traumatic stress field to develop and disseminate evidence-based trauma interventions and trauma-informed services for youth and families exposed to domestic and community violence  in, or at risk for involvement in, court, juvenile justice, and law enforcement systems. Three evidence-based interventions have been disseminated nationally to more than 50 programs) and tested for sustainability in three parallel initiatives led by the model developers: (1) Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy-Adolescents (TARGET-A); (2) Trauma and Grief Components Therapy-Adolescents (TGCT-A); and (3) Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS). CTRJJ also disseminates the Network-developed juvenile justice trauma-informed services education resources: Think Trauma, Trauma Benchcard for judges, fact sheets on trauma and juvenile justice, and Essential Elements for Trauma-Informed Juvenile Justice.

University of Illinois at Chicago, Urban Youth Trauma Center, Institute for Juvenile Research

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2009 - 2012]
Description: 
The Urban Youth Trauma Center (UYTC): Treatment Collaborative for Trauma and Violence (TCTV) will promote and disseminate comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated care for multiproblem, at-risk youth affected by trauma and violence involved with delinquency or the justice system. The program will strengthen both service system connectivity and community-based best practices for trauma-informed intervention and prevention, particularly among court judges, juvenile justice probation officers, and law enforcement staff. TCTV goals are to: 1) increase awareness about the needs of traumatized youth who are affected by community and domestic violence—and who are involved with court, juvenile justice, and law enforcement systems—while emphasizing the enhancement of community resources and service system collaboration; 2) disseminate trauma-informed treatment approaches designed for multiproblem youth experiencing traumatic stress, violence exposure, and co-occurring substance abuse—using Trauma Systems Therapy for Adolescent Substance Abuse (TST-SA)—and disruptive behavior problems, using STRONG Families; and 3) provide training and consultation to facilitate service system and community resource collaboration, using a socioecologically based and trauma-informed model of collaboration developed by UYTC, called YOUTH-CAN (Youth Overcoming Urban Trauma and Healing through Community Action Network), which promotes the use of best practices for trauma intervention and violence prevention among youth service providers within targeted communities.

University of Maryland, Baltimore, Family Informed Trauma Treatment (FITT) Center

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2007 - 2011]
Description: 

The Family-Informed Trauma Treatment (FITT) Center leads local and national efforts to understand how trauma—especially complex trauma—affects families. Proceeding from the understanding that family trauma interventions optimize child and family healing and promote resilience, the FITT Center enhances systems capacities to address the needs of children and families using a two-pronged approach of increasing provider capacity and consumer advocacy. Objectives include providing new training and tools for service systems’ workforces engaged with family systems exposed to chronic trauma related to poverty by (1) widely disseminating via the FITT Toolkit, and (2) developing innovative training curricula, focusing on family-informed, evidence-based trauma interventions for mental health professionals and for master’s-level and doctoral students. Collaborating with 19 Children’s Trauma Centers (CTCs) and other provider organizations that support large numbers of families living in poverty, the Center improves access to three effective family trauma treatments: Strengthening Families Coping Resources (SFCR), Trauma-Adapted Family Connections (TA-FC), and FamilyLive (FL). Further, the FITT Center developed and disseminated  a family-based assessment and treatment planning tool: Family Assessment of Needs and Strengths-Trauma (FANS-Trauma). Finally, the FITT Center continues to develop messages and tools designed to help families learn how to be heard as they advocate in the public arena and within child service systems.
