Fordham University & Hunter College Schools of Social Work, Creating and Sustaining the Next Generation of Trauma-Informed Practitioners

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2009-2012]
Description: 
The Creating & Sustaining the Next Generation of Trauma-Informed Practitioners project will implement “Core Concepts First"—a model that combines foundational developmentally informed trauma knowledge with five treatments designed to treat the pervasive developmental effects of trauma. The center's model will transform NCTSN trauma training; and will increase the capacity of practitioners, schools of social work (SSWs), and community agencies to provide children, adolescents, and their families with the most effective trauma-informed treatment. Working with practitioners, community-based agencies, NCSTN Category II sites, and SSWs, the center will implement its Core Concepts First model, which combines NCTSN’s Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma (CCCT) with trauma treatment trainings. The goals of the project are to strengthen trauma training by: 1) increasing practitioners’ knowledge of developmental trauma; 2) transforming the ways in which the NCTSN offers trauma treatment training; 3) creating the infrastructure to assist community agencies to become organizationally ready to introduce and sustain trauma treatment; 4) developing the capacity of practitioners and community agencies to provide developmentally informed trauma care for military families and children, and Native American children; and 5) extending the center's local, regional, and national reach. The populations to be served are community agencies, SSWs, current practitioners and future (now student) practitioners who work with children and youth whose early exposure to multiple episodes of interpersonal violence in the context of deprivation and neglect puts them at increased risk for negative developmental consequences across their lifespan. During the four years of the grant, the project will reach more than 1,500 agency practitioners, 30–40 new SSWs, and more than 2,000 students.

Gulf Coast Mental Health Center, Trauma Informed Disaster and Evidence-Based Services (TIDES)

Funding Period: 
[2008 - 2012]
Description: 

Trauma Informed Disaster and Evidence-Based Services (TIDES) will develop proficiency in evidence-based trauma practices and will treat Katrina survivors by centrally organizing staff to be prepared for inevitable hurricanes. The target population is children of military personnel living on the two military bases on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The project will address other therapy needs specific to this population including incorporating Child Parent Conjoint-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CPC-CBT) and Trauma Assessment Pathways (TAP) for assessing and addressing already traumatized populations, and Psychological First Aid (PFA) for preparing for future disasters within their site. Clinicians will educate the community on trauma and formally centralize crisis response for future events. TIDES staff will continue training to become trauma-based experts, and will sustain gains made in TF-CBT by continuing to provide therapy to a traumatized region while working with TF-CBT co-developer Esther Deblinger to modify the therapy to include trauma specific to military families. Four TIDES therapists currently trained in TF-CBT will be developed as experts for the region.
