Description: 

The INcreasing Virginia's Evidence-Supported Treatments (INVEST) for Children Project—headquartered at the Child Abuse Program—will increase access to evidence-based, trauma-informed services for child victims of maltreatment residing in Hampton Roads.

INVEST will create a trauma-informed network of professionals throughout southeastern Virginia, which has a 20 percent military population and 10 military installations including the largest naval base in the world. A total of 440 professionals (including 141 military professionals) will be trained in screening and referral practices; and 10 clinicians will be trained in and will deliver treatments. An expected 2,761 children and adolescents aged 2–17, including more than 1,100 military children, will receive trauma-informed screening and referral services; and 650 children/youth, including at least 130 military children/youth, will receive evidence-based, trauma-informed treatment.

Dartmouth Trauma Interventions Research Center, New Hampshire Bridge Project

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012 and 2005 - 2009]
Description: 
As an NCTSN member, the Dartmouth Trauma Interventions Research Center (DTIRC) brought evidence-based treatment (TF CBT) for traumatized children to every community mental health center in New Hampshire. Through SAMHSA funding and grants from the New Hampshire Endowment for Health and the Fidelity Foundation, DTIRC established a videoconference network to allow weekly supervision of clinicians by DTIRC and national experts. DTIRC also implemented Project Prevent, which enhanced access to evidence-based evaluation and trauma treatment (CPP) for children aged 0-5 in four agencies across New Hampshire. Its NCTSN-sponsored New Hampshire Bridge project allowed implementation of mental health screening and treatment referral processes across five New Hampshire juvenile justice courts by partnering with family court judges. The most recent NCTSN project entailed a highly productive collaboration with the New Hampshire Division of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) in which the Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BSC) increased placement stability for children in foster care through trauma-sensitive practices in child welfare. Most recently, DTIRC has partnered with DCYF on two Administration for Children and Families (ACF) grants designed to develop a collaborative trauma-informed child welfare system that effectively addresses the well-being needs of involved youth. The Partners for Change project aims to improve the social and emotional well-being of children in the New Hampshire child welfare system, including juvenile justice youth, through universal screening, assessment, evidence-based treatment, progress monitoring, and psychotropic medication oversight. New Hampshire Adoption Preparation and Preservation will focus on the creation of a child serving system in which adoptive children and families have access to trauma-informed, adoption-competent services and supports so that they have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to meet the child’s needs and ensure a successful adoption.
