The Child and Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training Institute (CATTTI) will provide trauma-informed training to the child welfare system and will implement trauma-informed, evidence-based practices into community-based care throughout Kentucky, with an emphasis on an under-resourced region of the state that includes a large number of military children associated with Fort Knox and Fort Campbell. CATTTI will select and train 16 clinical associates to deliver Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), using a Learning Collaborative model of training, in consultation with NCTSN Category II professionals who are expert in creating military adaptations to these evidence-based practices. Evidence-based treatment services will be provided to 1,020 children and caregivers across the state. Training will be provided to 480 child welfare workers using the NCTSN Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit.
