Mountain Comprehensive Care Center, Inc., Child Traumatic Stress Initiative

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The Hope Initiative will target children and adolescents aged 0–17, along with their parents/caregivers, who have experienced neglect, physical abuse, and/or sexual abuse. Priority will be given to children and adolescents of military families. Three evidence-based practices will be utilized: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Adapted Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Special Populations (A-DBT-SP), and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). MCCC will conduct comprehensive outreach that is culturally appropriate and gender-appropriate to increase access to trauma-informed care as well as to improve outpatient trauma-focused treatment and services through implementation of the three interventions. Working in conjunction with regional partners, MCCC will also provide leadership in training and education to help providers in rural Kentucky better address the impact of trauma on children, adolescents, and their families. Finally, staff will be trained on the unique needs surrounding sexual and gender identity so that LGBTQ clients feel comfortable and safe while they address their trauma and other needs.

University of Louisville, The Center for Promoting Recovery and Resilience of Traumatized Children and Youth (CPRR)

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021 and 2012 - 2016]
Description: 
Metro Louisville’s Center for Promotion of Recovery and Resilience (CPRR) will utilize a comprehensive, community based approach consisting of) capacity building, 2) community and referral source education, 3) child/youth centered evidence based trauma focused interventions, and 4) consumer feedback and evaluation to help children and youth (military, refugee, or maltreated and sexually exploited and trafficked) overcome effects of trauma. Specifically, this project will 1) increase knowledge and skills of personnel who make referrals and provide services to children regarding trauma and related services, 2) provide trauma focused intervention services to military children, refugee children, and children victimized by abuse, neglect and exposed to family violence, and 3) evaluate the impact of the project on consumers of this proposed project. By the completion of the project, 100 providers will have been trained in evidence based trauma interventions (e.g. TF-CBT, CBITS, FOCUS), 575 children and their families will have been provided trauma treatment and education, and 50 community agencies serving children and youth will have become trauma informed. A final report will be disseminated through presentations and publication on the project’s impact and lessons learned on how to best respond to the needs of traumatized children and youth.

Description: 

The University of Kentucky Research Foundation/Child and Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training Institute (CATTTI) is housed at the University of Kentucky's Center on Trauma and Children. CATTTI provides services to children and families who have experienced a wide range of traumatic exposures and works closely with child serving systems of care to build community capacity to identify and serve traumatized children in need. CATTTI partners with community-based providers across the state of Kentucky to deliver trauma-informed evidence-based and culturally informed interventions to traumatized youth and their families. CATTTI also emphasizes training and service delivery in an under-resourced region of the state that includes a large number of military children associated with Fort Knox and Fort Campbell, and is working toward improving access, rates of attrition, and quality in prevention and intervention service delivery. Evidence-based interventions provided through the CATTTI project include Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) and will be expanding to include Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS) and Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy (TARGET). CATTTI employs workforce development strategies that include training initiatives, including the NCTSN’s Caring for Children who have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents, develops resources related to preventing and addressing Secondary Traumatic Stress, and uses the Core Curriculum for Child Traumatic Stress to prepare and train child psychiatry residents and fellows.
