Description: 

The National Native Children’s Trauma Center (NNCTC) will work across educational, mental health, child welfare, and juvenile justice systems for the purpose of enhancing system capacity to address the effects of childhood traumatic stress among AI/AN populations, to increase access to care for AI/AN children and youth who have been exposed to trauma, and to improve the standard of mental health care for AI/AN children in Indian Country and urban areas. Our goals are to: 1) build and maintain long-term partnerships with tribal, local, and regional stakeholders and with NCTSN centers to enable responsiveness to locally identified needs and to promote policies benefitting traumatized AI/AN children; 2) Increase school-based supports and services for AI/AN students with trauma exposure by integrating universal school-wide interventions with selective clinical resources; 3) Increase supports for at-risk AI/AN children involved with the child welfare system. (4) Increase supports for at-risk AI/AN children involved with the juvenile justice system; 5) Increase number of clinicians serving AI/AN youth who use evidence-based, culturally adapted trauma treatment; 6) Conduct high-fidelity cultural adaptations of EBPs and NCTSN interventions; and 7) Develop, evaluate, and disseminate original products. Specific interventions we will provide include: Practice Wise/Managing and Adapting Practice, Trauma Informed-Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports, Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS), classroom-based adaptation of CBITS, Bounce Back, Secondary Traumatic Stress Curriculum, Historical Trauma Training, BIA Human Services Curriculum, Attachment, Self-regulation, and Competency (ARC) and other NCTSN curriculums.
