Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2009-2012]
LUK Crisis Center—working in partnership with public and private agencies, and military entities—will enhance its Central Massachusetts Child Trauma Center (CMCTC) to strengthen, expand, and improve access to and availability of effective and culturally competent trauma-informed services and evidence-based trauma treatment for children/youth aged 0–18. With a focus on children/youth in military families who experience traumatic events, CMCTC will target 400 children/youth and families, implementing Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), in 65 cities and towns in central Massachusetts. Strategies include: 1) increasing the identification of trauma symptoms among children/youth, with an emphasis on military families; 2) building sustainable capacity to provide evidence-based trauma treatment and trauma-informed services within the community agencies implementing the models; and 3) improving the cultural competence of providers and child-serving entities in working with military families who have experienced trauma.
