Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2007 - 2011]
Description: 
The Trauma Recovery Initiative (TRI) will be developed by the Children's Home Society of Florida, in partnership with the Florida Mental Health Institute. The goal is to demonstrate and evaluate the effectiveness of in-home and in-office Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) as a sustainable, culturally competent, trauma-informed treatment to ameliorate adverse consequences of complex trauma for abused and neglected children aged 2–10 including children of military families. The TRI will particularly focus on using PCIT to promote effective resolution of negative behaviors that are often externalized expressions of trauma issues experienced by this population of abused and neglected children, and their families. The TRI-Center also incorporates innovative approaches to trauma screening, training, and treatment for foster parents, adoptive parents, and relative and nonrelative caregivers; and works to involve biological parents in the intervention Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in situations with a child welfare concurrent plan.
