Treatment and Services Adaptation Centers - Category II

University of California, San Francisco, Early Trauma Treatment Network

Funding Period: 
[2012 -2016, 2009 - 2012, 2005 - 2009 and 2001 - 2005]
Description: 
The Early Trauma Treatment Network (ETTN): Raising the Standard of Care for Young Children 0–5 will address the needs of traumatized young children and preschoolers by raising their standard of care and by enabling increased access to evidence-based trauma treatment for them. ETTN will work to build early trauma competence in the systems serving these children. Statistically, young children and preschoolers have a higher exposure to trauma; and they are the most defenseless due to developmental vulnerability, and dependency on parents and/or caregivers. ETTN will: 1) address training and service gaps by engaging in activities that promote workforce development; 2) create culturally competent products, resources, and training protocols; and 3) build mechanisms for collaboration across the mental health, pediatric care, early childhood education, early intervention, child welfare, judicial, and military systems. ETTN is a collaborative of four national programs. All ETTN sites will provide training in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), a manualized, evidence-based intervention for young children. To improve access to services and to raise the standard of care for traumatized young children and preschoolers, ETTN will build training infrastructure and conduct five Learning Collaboratives with NCTSN Centers and community-based programs—focusing on American Indian providers, military family providers, distance learning technologies, Train-the-Trainer Learning Collaboratives to increase CPP capacity in training and supervision, and national Learning Collaboratives with tracks for Spanish-speaking providers. Additionally, ETTN will create educational and training materials for parents, childcare providers, and service providers for military families; and will collaborate with the NCCTS and with NCTSN Centers in cross-site evaluation, training, and dissemination. Over the course of the grant, ETTN will provide training related to early childhood trauma to 40,000+ service providers and CPP training to a minimum of 480 mental health practitioners.

Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego, The Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Dissemination and Implementation Project

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016, 2010 - 2013, 2005 - 2009 and 2002 - 2005]
Description: 

The Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Dissemination and Implementation Project (CTISP-DI) will be created by the Chadwick Center for Children and Families and the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC) to meet the needs of child abuse victims served by Child Protective Services and Child Welfare (CW) services across the nation. The center—in cooperation with the NCCTS, other select US Treatment and Services Adaptation (TSA) Centers and Community Treatment and Services (CTS) Centers, NCTSN committees, and CW and mental health organizations providing trauma treatment nationwide—will lead the transformation of public CW agencies into trauma-informed systems. CTISP-DI will translate the Trauma-Informed Child Welfare Conceptual Framework developed by CTISP into a systems-level intervention   with multiple components including training, consultation, and ongoing support using the Trauma-Informed Child Welfare Practice Toolkit and the revised version of the Child Welfare Trauma Training Toolkit (also developed as part of CTISP), among other tools. The CTISP-DI Trauma-Informed Child Welfare System Intervention will be disseminated to at least six CW systems in the United States to help them become supercommunities that fully implement the intervention at a true performance level. These evolved, trauma-informed CW systems will then reach thousands of children and families, and will serve as exemplars for their states and the nation while helping to lead the movement to true trauma-informed practice. The CTISP-DI will help to change the wider community CW system into a multidimensional, evidence-based, trauma-informed system that is better able to meet the unique needs of children and families involved in the CW system.
