The mission of Arkansas Building Effective Services for Trauma (ARBEST) is to improve outcomes for children who have experienced trauma and their families through excellence in clinical care, training, advocacy, and research & evaluation. ARBEST operates under the auspices of the Psychiatric Research Institute of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. ARBEST focuses on building capacity in our state’s Child Advocacy Centers by supporting their mental health programs, through our Community Mental Health Centers by training licensed mental health professionals in evidence-based treatments for children (i.e. TF-CBT, PCIT, and CPP), and with our child welfare agencies by offering trauma-informed practiced trainings to their supervisors and frontline staff.
