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.

Services will include trauma screening, comprehensive trauma assessment, parent trauma training, resiliency strategies for children and families, and workforce development.

Description: 

The Wendt Center for Loss and Healing currently provides trauma-informed group and individual therapy, implemented using Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to children and adolescents in public and public charter schools in Washington, DC, through its Resilient Scholars Project (RSP). With the NCTSN grant, RSP is expanding its services to offer home-based, family therapy, implemented using Trauma Adapted – Family Connections (TA-FC), to a subset of youth ages 12-17 who are already enrolled in the school-based services. RSP also includes trauma training/consultation for school/community partner personnel. In addition, RSP features both a policy and a research component. The children and youth in RSP are often exposed to domestic/community violence, sexual/physical assault, abuse, neglect, homicide, incarceration, suicide, homelessness, and intergenerational trauma. RSP services are focused in neighborhoods predominantly comprised of African American and Latino families who are impacted by poverty and violent crime. TA-FC is an evidence-based, culturally-informed intervention that incorporates case management to address basic needs and works holistically with students and their caregiving systems to address underlying trauma and build needed strategies and capacity to cope with future trauma exposure. The Wendt Center partners with the University of Maryland, Baltimore for technical expertise on TA-FC and The Catholic University of America for evaluation support.

Yale University, Childhood Violent Trauma Center (CVTC)

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2001 - 2005]
Description: 

The Childhood Violent Trauma Center (CVTC) at the Yale School of Medicine serves as the TSA Center in the area of acute/early/brief intervention, providing national expertise for early/acute responses to traumatic experiences, and supporting adaptation of early evidence-based treatments and service approaches following recent potentially traumatic events. CVTC will: 1) expand implementation of acute/early/brief trauma interventions, including the Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) and treatment applications, as well as Law Enforcement Response to Children Exposed to Violence (LE CEV). CFTSI is currently the only evidence-based brief, early mental health treatment for children 7-18 who have experienced a recent traumatic event and will be expanded to new populations including young children (ages 3-6) and medically/physically injured children. The acute/early/brief trauma interventions provided with law enforcement, based on the Child Development Community Policing (CD-CP) program, will also be expanded; 2) increase capacity of child-serving systems, including law enforcement and CACs, to support identification, referral, access and utilization of evidence-based trauma informed approaches, by developing engagement strategies designed specifically to engage families in the early/acute phase of trauma response that have not yet reached out for mental health treatment and other services; 3) develop, train, implement and evaluate acute/early/brief screening and identification protocols and early mental health treatments by initiating three Learning Communities focused on young children, medically/physically injured children and CACs; and 4) provide leadership to NCTSN committees and collaborate with NCTSN centers to develop products.

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.
