Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children
The Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children will adapt two evidence-based interventions to serve young children in deployed military families and traumatized adolescents in juvenile justice and residential treatment settings. Both groups include children at risk for or displaying trauma-related problems—such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, and/or behavior problems—due to extended parental deployments; and adolescents with complex trauma histories including child maltreatment, and family or community violence. Called A Continuum of Trauma Care: Adapting Evidence-based Practices to Promote Resiliency from Military Families through Juvenile Justice Settings, the program will adapt Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Trauma- and Grief-Focused Component Therapy for Adolescents (TGCT-A) for Juvenile Justice Settings (JJSs) and Residential Treatment Centers (RTCs). For each group, the center will provide training protocols and resources, implementation strategies, train-the-trainer toolkits, and a web-based training. Beginning with pilot sites in Ohio (JJS/RTC) and at Fort Hood and Tripler Army Medical Center (military families), scores of children, adolescents, and families will be served in the first year, expanding to directly serving hundreds in years two and three.
