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.

Dee Norton Lowcountry Children's Center

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2009 - 2012]
Description: 
The Dee Norton Lowcounty Children’s Center (DNLCC) is a children’s advocacy center serving Charleston and Berkeley Counties in South Carolina. As a Category III site, the original project aimed to increase access to treatment for children and their non-offending caregivers traumatized by abuse who exhibit or who are at risk for exhibiting sexual behavior problems (SBPs). The goal was to reduce the negative impacts of SBP by increasing the number of direct services provided by clinicians and community partners trained in evidence-supported treatment interventions for 252 children and their non-offending caregivers. The children and caregivers DNLCC serves come from diverse ethnic, racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. DNLCC implements the SBP treatments developed by the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, as well as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, parent-child interaction therapy, and risk reduction family therapy. The Center trains mental health professionals and provides evidence-based treatment plans, case management, and monitoring for children and their families through weekly CAC multidisciplinary team case reviews.

DePelchin Children's Center, Child Trauma Program

Funding Period: 
[2008 - 2012 and 2003 - 2007]
Description: 

The DePelchin Children’s Center Child Traumatic Stress Program delivers screening, assessment, case management, and mental health services to traumatized children residing in four southeast counties in Texas. Services are provided through DePelchin’s foster care, adoption/post-adoption, residential treatment, outpatient mental health counseling, and home-based therapy programs. DePelchin focuses on children who are the victims of complex trauma or who suffer from trauma related to traumatic loss, abuse (physical, psychological, or sexual), maltreatment, or neglect. As a result of its participation in the NCTSN, DePelchin has integrated an emphasis on trauma-informed practices throughout the agency. DePelchin works with the community to provide information and training on best practices in child trauma treatment, and to increase the availability of and improve access to mental health services in the Greater Houston metropolitan area. DePelchin has also been actively involved in supporting evacuees in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Re-funded in 2008, DePelchin implemented the Child Trauma Program (DCTP) to mobilize Houston/Gulf Coast communities to help children and families address and overcome the unwanted effects of trauma. The DCTP targeted 1) children affected by trauma and in need of trauma-informed and trauma-focused treatment including referral to culturally adapted services (240 children); 2) children and families impacted by the effects of natural disasters including Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (360 children); and 3) children and families of military personnel deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan (100 families). The primary service area was Greater Harris County, Texas, including Houston, parts of the Gulf Coast, and surrounding counties. The DCTP brought together community leaders serving the target populations to expand access to and expertise in child trauma. Major goals were to: 1) establish a coordinated framework of community services, training, and leadership; 2) expand access to the delivery system of trauma-focused mental health care in the Houston/Gulf Coast area to children and families suffering the long-term effects of natural disaster and deployment trauma; and 3) provide leadership for the dissemination of information on the impact of trauma on children and families and the utilization of trauma-focused interventions.
