Oklahoma Department of Mental Health Substance Abuse, BE-ME

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

BE-ME will be created by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) and the 14 Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) statewide, partnering to address SAMHSA's Strategic Initiative related to violence and trauma. Project goals are to: 1) train CMHCs’ licensed and nonlicensed staff to understand the impact of trauma and how it relates to an individual's response to treatment; 2) implement a statewide trauma screening and assessment process using evidence-based tools; 3) conduct specialized training for the behavioral health workforce to provide trauma-specific services; 4) empower children in care and their families to direct their own services through trauma-informed support services; and 5) develop a feedback structure to inform and evaluate development of the proposed trauma-informed system. A SHARE (Strengthening Hope and Resilience Everyday) website will be developed for trauma education and training. Approximately 15,960 children will be screened, assessed, and offered trauma-specific, evidence-based services during the grant period.

University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, FIRST Program

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The Families Increasing Resilience, Strength and Trust through positive relationships (FIRST) Program will leverage training expertise, program evaluation, and product development to further the NCTSN's mission to positively influence the lives of families impacted by trauma. The program will increase availability of two evidence-based interventions—Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Sexual Behavior Problems: Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (SBP-CBT)—delivered with high fidelity to traumatized families. Both PCIT (a SAMHSA-recognized intervention) and SBP-CBT (a comprehensive family-based intervention for children with inappropriate sexual behaviors) can be utilized to address child behavioral problems common among children affected by sexual and nonsexual trauma, and among families dealing with military deployment–related trauma. Implementation methods include innovative telehealth applications and Learning Collaborative strategies. The FIRST Program will expand treatments to military families experiencing deployment stressors and will enhance family resilience. The collaboration will contribute to the Network's understanding of the implementation process for family-based interventions including integrating new research findings from the program’s studies of telehealth-based implementation. Additionally, the program will provide support and leadership to Category III sites and other agencies seeking to expand their portfolio of trauma-informed services. Project deliverables will include: 1) PCIT and SBP-CBT Learning Collaborative models, 2) uniform training methods and materials, 3) telehealth protocols, and 4) development of a model of care for families of children with trauma exposure and secondary behavior management problems.
