Description: 

Brooklyn Action for Child and Teen Success (Brooklyn-ACTS) is a program of The Family Center focusing on building agency and community capacity to identify and treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in children ages 5-18. In collaboration with the CARES Institute, Brooklyn ACTS trains and certifies therapists in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and provides the intervention to children and adolescents residing in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Brooklyn, NY. The program aims to build sustainable capacity within the agency and with our central Brooklyn community partners to increase on-going access to evidenced-based, trauma-focused treatment and services for minority children who experience or witness traumatic events. These severely traumatized children exhibit significant emotional or behavioral difficulties related to one or more traumatic life events, including complex trauma. Clinicians, clinical supervisors, directors, and community partners are trained in TF-CBT, an evidenced-based intervention that effectively treats trauma symptoms in children, adolescents, and their parents. The program also assesses for common barriers to retention in behavioral health services and provides care management to address these barriers. Our integrated approach reflects our philosophy that comprehensive trauma-informed, culturally congruent treatment and person-centered care management helps create meaningful and sustained improvements in mental health and overall functioning. Trauma education and outreach to community partners enhances community partner capacity to identify and refer children whose behavior/symptoms suggest possible traumatic stress.

Hunter College Schools of Social Work

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2009-2012]
Description: 
The National Child Trauma Workforce Institute at Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work focuses on expansion of the trauma-informed workforce. The Institute uses an In Network strategy to disseminate the Core Concepts Curriculum (CCC) for use at CAT II & III sites throughout SAMHSA’s 10 regions. The primary populations served include NCTSN staff trained to facilitate CCC use; and clinical psychology interns, child psychiatry fellows, social workers students, and licensed clinical mental health and marriage and family counseling students, whom trained staff train during their field practicums at their sites using the CCC. Our primary services include: advanced and basic CCC Facilitation “Colleges”, and post-training consultation and implementation support to insure effective use of new CCC skills. Adoption of this network resource increases conceptual trauma knowledge and enhances the clinical reasoning and case formulation skills for existing staff and new staff, and the staff at partner agencies. The CCC has three main elements: a conceptual framework based on “Twelve Core Concepts” for understanding traumatic stress reactions in children and families from the child’s perspective; five in-depth case studies that convey the developmental impact of cumulative trauma exposure in children; and use of Problem Based Learning (PBL) facilitation to engage participants in a highly inter-active learning process. The Institute’s Beyond the Network strategy includes CCC dissemination for Post Masters CEU training; creation of new cases and competency based evaluation tools.
