Ozark Center, Inc., Will's Place Project

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The NCTSN grant allows us to provide financial support for children and families so they have access to our outpatient mental health services. For under- or un-insured children, we are able to use grant dollars to provide therapy sessions. Sometimes we can take care of the deductible or co-pays. Another goal of our work is to increase trauma awareness among child-serving professionals in the area. First, we provide a screening, then conduct a trauma assessment (if indicated), and finally complete a psychological evaluation to determine the more specific effects of traumatic events. We follow up with a comprehensive array of educational and consultation activities. Child-serving professionals advance in understanding the "root to fruit" connection between trauma and psychosocial functioning. Our audience includes educators, court personnel, child protection workers, foster parents, home visitors, and therapists.

Parsons Child and Family Center, Heroes Project

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012 and 2002 - 2005]
Description: 
Parsons Child and Family Center’s Sidney Albert Training and Research Institute (SATRI) has provided training, consultation, and research as a NCTSN Community Practice sSite since 2002, including national and regional leadership in developing and disseminating evidence-supported trauma and resiliency-focused services for children and families with traumatic stress. The HEROES Project, a SAMHSA-funded NCTSN grant, provided integrated trauma-informed training for six programs at Parsons, the Albany County Children’s Mental Health Clinic, and the Albany County Department of Children, Youth and Families from 2009-2012. The Project trained therapists, foster parents, residential counselors, child protective services workers, and educators, and evaluated of the efficacy of Real Life Heroes (RLH), a trauma and resiliency-focused treatment, to help children and families who had experienced multiple and interpersonal traumas such as emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, domestic violence, losses, or community violence. Results of HEROES Project research are being published in a journal of the American Psychological Association and include statistically significant decreases in child behavior problems and trauma symptoms. The study supported the efficacy of implementing trauma and resiliency-focused treatment in a wide range of child welfare and children’s mental health programs. Following Parsons’ affiliation with the Northeast Parent and Child Society in 2012, the scope of SATRI training and consultation has more than doubled. The combined agencies currently serve more than 12,000 children and family members each year in 46 counties of New York State with 60 programs and over 1,200 staff. Primary service areas include: eEarly cChildhood, eEducation, tTraining and& rResearch, bBehavioral hHealth, fFamily fFoster cCare, rResidential cCare, cCase mManagement, pPrevention and& fFamily pPreservation, and cCareer dDevelopment. As a NCTSN affiliate organizations, the two agencies have continued Parsons’ commitment to “‘learning, adapting, creating, and delivering the most effective services for children and families.”’ In the last two years (2012-2014), Parsons’ sStaff have led, or co-led 13 workshops or presentations at national and regional conferences, and co-authored two articles in peer-reviewed journals and one chapter in a highly regarded book on the treatment of complex trauma in children and adolescents. Training programs, research, and publications continue Parsons’ commitment over the last 12 years to collaborative work with other NCTSN colleagues on disseminating evidence-supported trauma treatment. This has included participation in the NCTSN Affiliate Advisory Group, the Complex Trauma and Integrated Health Care committees, and co-leadership of the NCTSN Resource Parent Workgroup, which developed a highly regarded trauma-informed training used by foster, kinship, and adoptive parents across the United States. Training in Real Life Heroes, the Resource Parent Curriculum, and consultation on implementation of trauma-informed treatment in child welfare and children’s behavioral health programs are available through the Parsons SATRI.

Trauma-Informed Care for Very Young Children in Poverty Project (TIC-YC) is a collaboration of Penfield Children’s Center, a Birth-to-Three agency, and Marquette University, both of which are located in the central city of Milwaukee WI. The Behavior Clinic, the home of TIC-YC, was founded in 2003 to provide in-home, mental health services to children 5 years of age and younger with significant behavior and emotional problems. Referrals come from over 80 community agencies, individual service providers (e.g., pediatricians, public health nurses, social workers), and parents. The two primary goals of TIC-YC are: (1) provide trauma-informed care to children, 0-5, most of whom live in poverty and (2) increase local capacity to serve these children through: a. service agreements with other local agencies and schools to provide integrated care for traumatized young children; b. training teachers and other individuals who work daily with these children to recognize trauma symptoms, have knowledge of available trauma-related services, and refer these children’s families to appropriate service providers; and c. training community-based professionals to become competent to deliver the Early Pathways (EP) Program. EP integrates improving parent-child relationships, teaching cognitive-behavioral strategies within a sound developmental framework, and incorporating current trauma research to provide caregivers with practical tools taught within a flexible and hands-on format in the familiar setting of the children’s homes. EP was recognized as an evidence-based program by SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices and as highly relevant to the child welfare system by the California Evidence- Based Clearinghouse.

Description: 

In collaboration with the Asian Health Services (AHS), the Health Intervention Projects for Underserved Populations (HIPUP), Public Health Institute (PHI) will implement the Trauma Informed Programs for Asian Communities (TIPAC) that aims to provide trauma-informed treatment and other services to reduce mental health and behavioral problems (e.g., substance use) and promote health and well-being for Asian Americans and immigrants in Alameda County, CA. TIPAC will target Asian children (6 to 18 years old) and their families who have had traumatic experiences due to refugee/immigration/relocation process, child abuse, and other traumatic events (e.g., exposure to war and disaster). In collaboration with local CBOs and the Public Health Department, we will conduct community and online outreach and recruit the targeted Asian children and families who are suffering from trauma. We will provide evidence-based and culturally appropriate trauma-informed treatment and other programs (e.g., Asian youth community empowerment) and evaluate the efficacy of TIPAC on the targeted health outcomes. We will also facilitate system level changes in child-serving systems to improve access, use, and outcomes of trauma-informed treatment and other services in the San Francisco Bay area. Results of the process and outcome evaluation will be reported to SAMHSA and the targeted Asian communities through community forums and newsletters. Through direct individual and system level interventions, TIPAC will have a significant impact on increasing access, use, and outcomes of trauma-informed treatment and other services for Asian children and families who are suffering from trauma but have been neglected by mental health and other service providers.
