The Child and Adolescent Abuse Resource and Evaluation Center (CAARE) at UC Davis Children’s Hospital provides services to children and adolescents and their families in Sacramento, California who have been exposed to trauma, providing culturally informed, evidence-based, developmentally appropriate services. For this project, the CAARE Center will collaborate with Sacramento County Child Protective Services and Sacramento County Behavioral Health Services to support newly placed foster children’s transition to their new home. Infant Mental Health therapists at the CAARE Center will conduct trauma screenings of 1 – 5 year old foster children just entering foster care and provide PC-CARE—a brief, 6-week behaviorally-oriented, skills-based parenting intervention. Trauma screenings of foster children entering care and teaching foster parents about trauma symptoms is hypothesized to help connect traumatized children to mental health services more quickly. Teaching and coaching foster parents positive parenting skills as they play with the child, is hypothesized to support the developing relationship between the caregiver and child, and provide caregivers strategies for effective behavior management, thus promoting placement stability. In addition to trauma screening and providing a brief, preventive intervention, the CAARE Center team will give presentations to stakeholders (such as foster family associations, county foster parents) on the effects of trauma on young children’s behavior and mental health and the value of positive parenting.
