University of California, Davis, UC Davis - PCIT Training Center

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012]
Description: 
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.

University of Southern California, Trauma Services Adaptation (TSA) Center for Resiliency, Hope, and Wellness in Schools

Funding Period: 
[2016 -2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2009 - 2012]
Description: 
The purpose of the TSA for Schools is to promote trauma-informed schools and school systems nationwide by enabling all schools to deliver effective trauma practices and interventions and developing a supportive and nurturing environment for trauma-exposed students, especially those from the most vulnerable populations. To achieve this, we have three primary goals: The TSA for Schools will further develop and enhance implementation and broad dissemination of our effective school-based interventions: the Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Schools (CBITS) for middle and high school students, Bounce Back for elementary school students, and Support for Students Exposed to Trauma (SSET) which can be delivered by non-clinical counselors and teachers. We will also further the development and dissemination of our trauma curriculum, Life Improvement for Teens (LIFT), an interactive, web-based curriculum for high school students relating to stress, trauma, or adverse experiences. For educators and other school staff, we will develop and disseminate online platforms to teach trauma-informed classroom skills and self-care to teachers. We will also partner with school safety experts to create a trauma-informed curriculum and training for school resource officers “school police”. The TSA for Schools will also help schools systematically develop a trauma-informed infrastructure by creating an online resource for school systems to evaluate their level of being trauma-informed that identifies their readiness to adopt trauma-informed practices and next steps in effective implementation, including ways to sustain practices through federal and other funding opportunities. Additionally, we will continue to host our Annual National Summit on Trauma Informed Schools.

Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego, The Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Dissemination and Implementation Project

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2002 - 2005]
Description: 

The Chadwick Center for Children and Families at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego is creating the Center for Child Welfare Trauma-Informed Practice and Systems Change to support child welfare (CW) system efforts across the nation. The ultimate goal of the Center is for Trauma Informed (TI) knowledge and skills to permeate into CW organizational cultures, at all levels and among all roles, resulting in positive sustainable changes in the systems, policies, and practices which lead to better outcomes for children and families served by these systems. The Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit (CWTTT) is being transformed into four new curricula for use with specific targeted segments of the CW system workforce including caseworkers, supervisors, leaders (directors and managers), and support staff (receptionists, case aides, etc.). Information on how culture and trauma intersect is being wound into each of the curricula and all of them will be designed with a consultation/coaching framework. The Center is developing a system for training trainers across the country in these curricula and will provide continued support to these rostered trainers. Thoughtful consideration is being given to how to roll the adaptations out to communities that have already received the initial CWTTT training. Advanced training around topics such as secondary traumatic stress and screening and service array are also being developed. Additionally, the Center is working with CW training organizations to explore how TI concepts can be infused into existing core/foundational CW training.
