The Children's Center, Trauma Program for Families and Young Children

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2009-2012]
Description: 
The Trauma Program for Families with Young Children will provide evidence-based trauma treatments to children aged 0–8 living in four metropolitan counties (Salt Lake, Davis, Utah, and Weber). Participants in the program will include children who have suffered trauma (including sexual, physical abuse, or neglect, and witnessing severe domestic violence) or traumatic grief. A specific focus will be on military children suffering from grief or from the return of an impaired parent/caregiver; other populations will include refugee children suffering from the loss of their home and extended family members, and children in domestic violence shelters. During the four-year program, approximately 6,000 children will be screened for trauma; and of those screened, 3,000 will receive trauma-informed mental health assessments. Additionally, 240 military children will be treated. By the end of the grant, 420 children and families will receive evidence-based trauma treatment.

Funding Period: 
[2001 - 2005]
Description: 
The Center for Safe and Healthy Families at Primary Children’s Hospital provides treatment and services for children who experience trauma related to maltreatment.

This network is no longer being maintained, but the initiative is being sustained through regional collaboration for training on the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse. Safe and Healthy Families continues to use evidence-based trauma treatment practices, maintains active collaboration with other centers, and is currently engaged in helping Utah’s Division of Child and Family Services become a trauma-informed agency.
