Northwestern University Medical School, Center for Child Trauma Assessment and Planning

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2010 - 2013]
Description: 
The Center for Child Trauma Assessment and Service Planning (CCTASP) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine specializes in comprehensive, trauma-focused assessment; training and consultation; and development, implementation, and evaluation of interventions focused on the developmental effects of trauma. The goals of CCTASP are to (1) enhance education and skill-building on the developmental effects of trauma across child-serving settings; (2) expand dissemination of and increase accessibility to comprehensive trauma-focused assessments; (3) enhance translation of trauma-focused assessments in practice; and (4) develop and disseminate trauma-focused assessments and intervention resources on the developmental effects of trauma. A primary focus of our Center is the dissemination and application of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths-Trauma (CANS-Trauma) as a trauma-focused and strengths-based comprehensive assessment and as a treatment/services planning tool. CCTASP strives to support practices with family members and providers that translate and apply assessment information in a meaningful way in casework and clinical practice with the goal of improving clinical outcomes. CCTASP gears intervention resources toward children, adolescents, caregivers, and providers across a range of child-serving settings with a particular focus on child welfare and behavioral health/mental health settings. Resources include education and training videos on trauma assessment and the developmental effects of trauma; an interactive, online training website; practice/intervention tools on the developmental effects of trauma including dissociation; and informational resources, tip sheets, and strategic guidelines on family engagement, trauma-informed assessment, and other trauma-informed practice issues.

Ozark Center, Inc., Will's Place Project

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The NCTSN grant allows us to provide financial support for children and families so they have access to our outpatient mental health services. For under- or un-insured children, we are able to use grant dollars to provide therapy sessions. Sometimes we can take care of the deductible or co-pays. Another goal of our work is to increase trauma awareness among child-serving professionals in the area. First, we provide a screening, then conduct a trauma assessment (if indicated), and finally complete a psychological evaluation to determine the more specific effects of traumatic events. We follow up with a comprehensive array of educational and consultation activities. Child-serving professionals advance in understanding the "root to fruit" connection between trauma and psychosocial functioning. Our audience includes educators, court personnel, child protection workers, foster parents, home visitors, and therapists.

Parsons Child and Family Center, Heroes Project

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012 and 2002 - 2005]
Description: 
Parsons Child and Family Center’s Sidney Albert Training and Research Institute (SATRI) has provided training, consultation, and research as a NCTSN Community Practice sSite since 2002, including national and regional leadership in developing and disseminating evidence-supported trauma and resiliency-focused services for children and families with traumatic stress. The HEROES Project, a SAMHSA-funded NCTSN grant, provided integrated trauma-informed training for six programs at Parsons, the Albany County Children’s Mental Health Clinic, and the Albany County Department of Children, Youth and Families from 2009-2012. The Project trained therapists, foster parents, residential counselors, child protective services workers, and educators, and evaluated of the efficacy of Real Life Heroes (RLH), a trauma and resiliency-focused treatment, to help children and families who had experienced multiple and interpersonal traumas such as emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, domestic violence, losses, or community violence. Results of HEROES Project research are being published in a journal of the American Psychological Association and include statistically significant decreases in child behavior problems and trauma symptoms. The study supported the efficacy of implementing trauma and resiliency-focused treatment in a wide range of child welfare and children’s mental health programs. Following Parsons’ affiliation with the Northeast Parent and Child Society in 2012, the scope of SATRI training and consultation has more than doubled. The combined agencies currently serve more than 12,000 children and family members each year in 46 counties of New York State with 60 programs and over 1,200 staff. Primary service areas include: eEarly cChildhood, eEducation, tTraining and& rResearch, bBehavioral hHealth, fFamily fFoster cCare, rResidential cCare, cCase mManagement, pPrevention and& fFamily pPreservation, and cCareer dDevelopment. As a NCTSN affiliate organizations, the two agencies have continued Parsons’ commitment to “‘learning, adapting, creating, and delivering the most effective services for children and families.”’ In the last two years (2012-2014), Parsons’ sStaff have led, or co-led 13 workshops or presentations at national and regional conferences, and co-authored two articles in peer-reviewed journals and one chapter in a highly regarded book on the treatment of complex trauma in children and adolescents. Training programs, research, and publications continue Parsons’ commitment over the last 12 years to collaborative work with other NCTSN colleagues on disseminating evidence-supported trauma treatment. This has included participation in the NCTSN Affiliate Advisory Group, the Complex Trauma and Integrated Health Care committees, and co-leadership of the NCTSN Resource Parent Workgroup, which developed a highly regarded trauma-informed training used by foster, kinship, and adoptive parents across the United States. Training in Real Life Heroes, the Resource Parent Curriculum, and consultation on implementation of trauma-informed treatment in child welfare and children’s behavioral health programs are available through the Parsons SATRI.

Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego, The Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Dissemination and Implementation Project

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2002 - 2005]
Description: 

The Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Dissemination and Implementation Project (CTISP-DI) will be created by the Chadwick Center for Children and Families and the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC) to meet the needs of child abuse victims served by Child Protective Services and Child Welfare (CW) services across the nation. The center—in cooperation with the NCCTS, other select US Treatment and Services Adaptation (TSA) Centers and Community Treatment and Services (CTS) Centers, NCTSN committees, and CW and mental health organizations providing trauma treatment nationwide—will lead the transformation of public CW agencies into trauma-informed systems. CTISP-DI will translate the Trauma-Informed Child Welfare Conceptual Framework developed by CTISP into a systems-level intervention   with multiple components including training, consultation, and ongoing support using the Trauma-Informed Child Welfare Practice Toolkit and the revised version of the Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit (also developed as part of CTISP), among other tools. The CTISP-DI Trauma-Informed Child Welfare System Intervention will be disseminated to at least six CW systems in the United States to help them become supercommunities that fully implement the intervention at a true performance level. These evolved, trauma-informed CW systems will then reach thousands of children and families, and will serve as exemplars for their states and the nation while helping to lead the movement to true trauma-informed practice. The CTISP-DI will help to change the wider community CW system into a multidimensional, evidence-based, trauma-informed system that is better able to meet the unique needs of children and families involved in the CW system.
