Foundations for Out Reach through Experiential Child Advocacy Studies Training (FORECAST) is a collaboration of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the University of Illinois-Springfield, the National Child Protection Training Center, and the National Children’s Alliance. FORECAST will disseminate the Core Concepts for Understanding Traumatic Stress Responses in Childhood to communities with Child Advocacy Studies (CAST) undergraduate university programs, equipping students from a range of child-serving disciplines as well as professionals in the local workforce with Trauma Informed Experiential Reasoning Skills (TIERS). The Core Concepts and TIERS will be disseminated via Problem Based Learning Simulations by undergraduate CAST faculty and community workforce trainers, who will be trained at FORECAST learning collaboratives. FORECAST anticipates impacting psychology, social work, criminal justice, sociology, education, and nursing students at the undergraduate level, and the full range of Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) members at the community level. We anticipate impacting not only the population trained, but also workforce retention as people are better prepared to enter a trauma-informed workforce and agencies are better prepared to receive new graduates.

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The NCTSN grant allows us to provide financial support for children and families so they have access to our outpatient mental health services. For under- or un-insured children, we are able to use grant dollars to provide therapy sessions. Sometimes we can take care of the deductible or co-pays. Another goal of our work is to increase trauma awareness among child-serving professionals in the area. First, we provide a screening, then conduct a trauma assessment (if indicated), and finally complete a psychological evaluation to determine the more specific effects of traumatic events. We follow up with a comprehensive array of educational and consultation activities. Child-serving professionals advance in understanding the "root to fruit" connection between trauma and psychosocial functioning. Our audience includes educators, court personnel, child protection workers, foster parents, home visitors, and therapists.
