Yale Child Study Center, Childhood Violent Trauma Center

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2001 - 2005]
Description: 

The Childhood Violent Trauma Center (CVTC) of the Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine will serve as the lead Treatment and Services Adaption (TSA) Center in the areas of acute, early, and brief intervention. Efforts will focus on the Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI), designed to help children and adolescents aged 7–18 who have experienced potentially traumatic events (PTE)—including sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence (DV), community violence (CV), and injuries and accidents—and who have exhibited symptoms of acute stress. The project will broaden the application, adoption, and dissemination of CFTSI with a variety of populations and service systems through: 1) continued adaptation and implementation of CFTSI in Child Advocacy Centers (CACs); 2) continued adaption of CFTSI for children in foster care; and 3) development of adaptations of CFTSI for implementation in DV shelters and emergency departments, and with military families. CFTSI dissemination will be broadened by conducting a national Learning Collaborative and by building training capacity via a Train-the-Trainer program. Additionally, a Web-based CFTSI Site Sustainability System (CS3) will be developed to collect, analyze, and report clinical outcomes and implementation process data, which will support continuous quality improvement and sustainability.
