The Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Centers (BI-SLR) HEARTS program will treat children, youth, and families involved in child welfare and juvenile justice systems, and children/youth of military families—increasing the number who receive culturally competent, evidence-based, trauma-informed services in Beth Israel outpatient clinics and at partner agencies. BI-SLR HEARTS will deliver Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) for children aged 5–18 with complex trauma and their families, and Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) for younger children and their caregivers. During the grant period, the program will serve children, youth, and families by screening 6,075; assessing 638; and treating 338. In addition, BI-SLR HEARTS will: 1) train 12 partners; 2) collaborate with SAMHSA and NCTSN to disseminate NCTSN products and participate in NCTSN-Ied activities; and 3) increase awareness of child traumatic stress in multiple child-serving systems and promote trauma-informed policies.
