Center for Success and Independence, Safety Acceptance Freedom Empowerment (S.A.F.E)

Funding Period: 
[2010 - 2012]
Description: 

The Center for Success and Independence has created Safety Acceptance Freedom Empowerment (S.A.F.E), which will provide services to the Harris County, Texas, juvenile justice program including trauma-informed screening, assessment, and treatment services to adolescents; new trauma-informed and trauma-focused practices in its residential program; and systems changes through consensus building, training, and technical assistance. S.A.F.E targets these youth, aged 12-17, because of the high prevalence of PTSD in this population, and because studies show a link between traumatic stress and escalating delinquency.

Key objectives during the three-year project period include: 1) screening 330 adolescents for PTSD at Harris County Juvenile Probation (HCJP) sites; 2) providing trauma-informed assessment and residential treatment using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to 96 adolescents; 3) implementing at least one new trauma-informed practice and one new trauma-focused intervention in the Center's residential program, with new services delivered to 64 adolescents; 4) providing a minimum of 8 hours of training and 24 hours of technical assistance to HCJP staff in trauma-informed services provision; and 5) providing five additional training events for HCJP providers.
