Chaddock, Trauma Initiative of West Central Illinois

Funding Period: 
[2008 - 2012]
Description: 
The Chaddock Trauma Initiative of West Central Illinois (CTIWCI) will provide trauma-informed services to under-served children and adolescents who live in the rural community of Quincy, Illinois, and the surrounding tri-state area (Illinois, Iowa, Missouri). Using school and community settings, the project will focus on treating traumatic stress, and will also provide training for parents, foster parents, educators, and other professionals. The project will serve more than 1,780 clients, aged 0-19, and their families who have experienced trauma due to child abuse and neglect, violence, poverty, catastrophic events, and/or separation and loss, particularly among families of military personnel who have been deployed to the Middle East. The project's training component will serve approximately 1,500 adults each year. The goals are to: 1) infuse the tri-state area with specialized evidence-based practices including Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS), and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS); 2) train parents and child-serving professionals to implement specialized trauma services; and 3) further develop best practice models of trauma-related services through collaboration and coordination with local, state, and national organizations.

Northwestern University Medical School, Center for Child Trauma Assessment and Planning

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2010 - 2013]
Description: 
The Center for Child Trauma Assessment and Service Planning (CCTASP) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine will specialize in comprehensive, trauma-focused assessment; training and consultation; and development, implementation, and evaluation of interventions focused on the developmental effects of trauma. The CCTASP will build an infrastructure to more effectively assess the developmental effects of trauma across child-serving systems, develop intervention resources to address identified needs in practice, and enhance widespread dissemination and application of effective interventions. Interventions will be geared toward children, adolescents, caregivers, and providers across a range of child-serving settings with a particular focus on child welfare, residential treatment centers, and juvenile justice. The center will emphasize the dissemination and application of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths-Trauma (CANS-Trauma) as a trauma-focused and strengths-based comprehensive assessment, treatment, and systems planning tool. Additionally, the CCTASP will translate and apply assessment information in a meaningful way for providers and consumers. The goals of CCTASP are to: 1) enhance education in and skill-building on a range of developmental effects of trauma across child-serving settings; 2) expand dissemination of and increase accessibility to comprehensive trauma-focused assessments on the developmental effects of trauma across child-serving settings; 3) enhance translation of trauma-focused assessments in practice; and 4) integrate and disseminate trauma-focused assessments and service/treatment interventions on the developmental effects of trauma.
