LSU Health Sciences Center, Louisiana Rural Trauma Services Center

Funding Period: 
[2008 - 2012 and 2003 - 2007]
Description: 
The Louisiana Rural Trauma Services Center (LRTSC) provides and enhances urgently needed crisis and mental health services for underserved children, adolescents, and families in rural Louisiana who have experienced traumatic stress as a result of disasters, community and family violence, accidents, loss of family members, and medical conditions. LRTSC works directly with rural hospitals and with school districts to conduct professional trainings that are developmentally sensitive and specific to aspects of crisis response. In schools, LRTSC professionals train staff to recognize the signs of trauma exposure, to differentiate children's responses to crisis situations, and to mitigate the impact of trauma. In 2004, at the request of the Louisiana 24th Judicial District, LRTSC expanded its mission to include work with trauma-exposed children and families who present in court. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, LRTSC has been providing services to children and families evacuated from New Orleans and now residing in rural parishes. Community advisory boards comprising community stakeholders provide input to LRTSC and collaborative partners for the LRTSC including the Louisiana State Department of Education, the Office of Mental Health, and public and community hospitals. Refunded in 2008, LRTSC will provide and evaluate a continuum of care of trauma-focused trainings, interventions, and services for children and adolescents aged 3?{18, including children of military families, in schools in Orleans, St. Bernard, and Plaquemines parishes that were heavily impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Due to the extent of the devastation and the complexity of recovery, training and service models will be adapted, modified for cultural sensitivity, and implemented to meet needs at this time. LRTSC has a strong commitment to providing culturally competent, evidence-based services, collaborating with Network members in meeting the goals of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative. Services are offered within school and preschool settings with parent, student, and school support. LRTSC will work at consensus building with input from families, school and military personnel, community, service providers, and other stakeholders in modifying trauma-focused practices and services with sensitivity to cultural competence.

Maine Behavioral Healthcare, The Maine Children's Trauma Response Initiative (The Children's Initiative)

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2007 - 2011]
Description: 
The Maine Children's Trauma Response Initiative is focused on creating a statewide trauma-informed system of care for children and youth exposed to violence. The Initiative aims to achieve this goal through a three-tiered approach that includes (1) trauma-informed training for service providers around the state; (2) building community-based coalitions focused on regional needs of children exposed to trauma; and (3) the implementation and widespread dissemination of TF-CBT. Specifically, The Children’s Initiative hosted annual TF-CBT Learning Collaboratives that brought together clinicians from every region of the State representing diverse organizations and private counseling practices to ensure that wherever children present for trauma services, they will have access to TF-CBT. Community-based training for non-clinical providers is also a major focus of this project and involves a combination of project-developed curricula and the formal implementation of NCTSN curricula.

Medical University of South Carolina, Program on Adolescent Traumatic Stress

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2003 - 2007]
Description: 

The Program on Adolescent Traumatic Stress (PATS) will further adapt, develop, evaluate, and disseminate evidence-based, culturally relevant, trauma-informed interventions and resources for traumatized adolescents; and will increase access to and build capacity nationally for the delivery of these interventions and services for this population. To achieve these goals the program will: 1) develop Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adolescents (TF-CBT-A); 2) adapt and develop NCTSN products that support delivery of effective, trauma-informed services for adolescents involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems; and 3) evaluate, disseminate, and implement Risk Reduction through Family Therapy (RRFT)—an intervention designed to reduce substance use risk and trauma-related mental health problems among abused adolescents. The target population area is the Southeastern United States (which has high rates of youth victimization and a disproportionate number of youth involved in the child welfare system) to increase the capacity of and access to evidence-based, trauma-focused interventions. PATS will train 960 practitioners across six states through 12 additional Learning Collaboratives and Community-Based Learning Collaboratives.

GRID-TTP will be part of a citywide effort to reduce gang violence and to address the impact of this violence on city residents, especially Denver's youth. The project, implemented by a consortium of Denver government, community, and faith-based agencies, led by the Mental Health Center of Denver (MHCD), is based on the Comprehensive Gang Model developed by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. GRID-TTP will deliver two primary interventionsCognitive Behavioral Interventions in Schools (CBITS) and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS)in three middle school, one high school, and five recreation/community centers in the targeted Denver neighborhoods. During the two-year project period, 140 unduplicated youth will be served, some of whom, along with their families, will be referred to other MHCD services.

Prior funding to the Mental Health Center of Denver supported the Family Trauma Treatment Program, which providd access for low-income children and families to community mental health services through a network of more than thirty locations throughout the Denver area. The program improved services and treatment for children who experienced trauma by implementing and evaluating evidence-based interventions in a variety of community settings including schools, shelters, juvenile detention centers, day care centers, and neighborhood clinics.
