The Center for Child and Family Health: Creating Trauma-Informed Community Care (CCFH) will enhance the cultural competence and clinical skills of clinicians working with child welfare and military families by developing, disseminating, and training providers on new cultural assessment tools. CCFH will advance curriculum development in the following ways: 1) pilot, revise, and disseminate adaptations of the NCTSN Resource Parenting Curriculum (RPC) to meet the needs of kinship caregivers, delivering curriculum to nearly 2,000 caregivers; 2) develop a Train-the-Trainer program for RPC in concert with the Child Welfare Work Group, providing training for 1,000+ facilitators; and 3) pilot the Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma (CCCT) with adaptations for child welfare and military populations, reaching 500+ families. CCFH will continue to develop and sustain direct service capacity of several evidence-based practices including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). In consultation with treatment developers, CCFH will train 500+ individuals in Trauma and Grief Components Therapy-Adolescents (TGCT-A). The project will also conduct a PCIT Learning Collaborative to benefit approximately 400 children from military families and clinicians treating military families during the grant period.
