Mountain Comprehensive Care Center, Inc., Child Traumatic Stress Initiative

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The Hope Initiative will target children and adolescents aged 0–17 who have experienced neglect, physical abuse, and/or sexual abuse. The program will serve 810 unduplicated participants during the four-year project period, engaging parents and families in the treatment process. Priority will be given to children and adolescents of military families. Three evidence-based practices will be utilized: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Adapted Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Special Populations (A-DBT-SP), and Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). MCCC will conduct comprehensive outreach that is culturally appropriate and gender-appropriate to increase access to trauma-informed care as well as to improve outpatient trauma-focused treatment and services through implementation of the three interventions. Working in conjunction with regional partners, MCCC will also provide leadership in training and education to help providers in rural Kentucky better address the impact of trauma on children, adolescents, and their families.
