Washington State University, CLEAR Trauma Center

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The CLEAR (Collaborative Learning for Educational Achievement and Resiliency) Trauma Center will be established in cooperation with public health, mental health, and national partners. The center will adopt the Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework as a model for teachers and other school staff to enable them to better understand the impact of trauma and to respond effectively in routine educational practice to help children recover from the effects of trauma. Additionally, the program will introduce crisis intervention (Psychological First Aid) and more intensive trauma treatment in the school—including Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) and ARC—for children who are not benefitting from adjustments to their learning environments, even in classes where teachers are skilled in understanding trauma. During the four years of funding, the program will serve more than 2,000 children who are struggling with trauma and its effects on their cognition, emotions, behavior, and academic success.

Description: 
The Wendt Center for Loss and Healing is a nonprofit agency that has been providing mental health services to children and families since 1977. The Wendt Center serves people throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area who have experienced the death of a loved one, are living with life-threatening illness, and/or have experienced a traumatic event such as sexual assault, domestic violence, or neighborhood violence. Individual counseling, trauma- and grief-based support groups, a summer grief camp for children, and training for mental health professionals are at the heart of the Wendt Center’s services. In 1999 the Wendt Center created the first program in the United States to provide onsite grief counseling to families who must visit the city morgue to identify a deceased loved one. Through this work the Wendt Center has developed an expertise in serving children from families that have experienced a traumatic loss.

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2001 - 2005]
Description: 

The Childhood Violent Trauma Center (CVTC) of the Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine will serve as the lead Treatment and Services Adaption (TSA) Center in the areas of acute, early, and brief intervention. Efforts will focus on the Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI), designed to help children and adolescents aged 7–18 who have experienced potentially traumatic events (PTE)—including sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence (DV), community violence (CV), and injuries and accidents—and who have exhibited symptoms of acute stress. The project will broaden the application, adoption, and dissemination of CFTSI with a variety of populations and service systems through: 1) continued adaptation and implementation of CFTSI in Child Advocacy Centers (CACs); 2) continued adaption of CFTSI for children in foster care; and 3) development of adaptations of CFTSI for implementation in DV shelters and emergency departments, and with military families. CFTSI dissemination will be broadened by conducting a national Learning Collaborative and by building training capacity via a Train-the-Trainer program. Additionally, a Web-based CFTSI Site Sustainability System (CS3) will be developed to collect, analyze, and report clinical outcomes and implementation process data, which will support continuous quality improvement and sustainability.

Youth Health Service, Inc. Strength Builders

Funding Period: 
[2005-2009]
Description: 

The Strength Builders Child and Adolescent Trauma Center of Youth Health Service, Inc. was developed in 2005 to serve children and adolescents aged two to 18 and their families who have experienced complex trauma in a three-county area of rural Appalachia. Since its inception, these services have expanded to incorporate a large rural area covering five counties in North Central West Virginia, to include young adults through age 24 years who have experienced intimate partner violence, and to expand trauma treatment and services in school settings in addition to traditional outpatient clinics. The program works collaboratively with a wide variety of child-serving agencies in this region to maximize the treatment opportunities for children and youth and their families who have experienced trauma. The philosophy of this program can be inferred from its title. Strength Builders recognizes that all children, teens, families, and communities have strengths that can be built upon as they move from trauma to recovery.
