New implementation science resource database added to National Center site

The National Center has created a searchable database of resources on implementing evidence-based child trauma interventions in organizations. The database includes links to peer-reviewed journal articles, professional reports, websites, and audiovisual resources. A majority of the resources are relevant to implementing child trauma interventions but some are focused more broadly on topics such as implementation theory and  research. Database users may choose from a detailed list of topics to find resources most relevant to their needs.

Each resource was reviewed by National Center staff  to ensure the best and most relevant resources were included. After searching by topic, keyword, and/or resources type users click on a link to access the resource on the internet. Although most of the resources are free some journal articles must be purchased.

National  Center Faculty Facilitate Training Sessions for Colorado Clinicians 

This past spring and summer Drs. Strand, Hansen, and Kammer presented three separate training sessions entitled, “Core Concepts of Child and Adolescent Trauma” to seventy-five mental health clinicians from community mental health agencies across Colorado. The two-day sessions were held in Colorado Springs, Glenwood Springs, and Fort Collins, CO. Participant learned about the twelve core-concepts of child trauma and reviewed and analyzed, in groups, three National Center client case studies.

Clinicians who completed the two-day training have been invited to participate in six monthly consultation calls with their faculty trainer. During these calls, participants have an opportunity to share anonymous details of a case from their own client caseload and discuss with colleagues and the faculty trainer how the Core Concepts of trauma apply to the case.

The spring/summer training sessions were sponsored by the Colorado Department of Human Services’ Office of Behavioral Health and funded by the UCLA/Duke National Center of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Dr. Strand is the co-Director of the National Center and Drs. Kammer and Hansen are National Center faculty associates. Several staff members from Colorado’s C. Henry Kempe National Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect also attended the training sessions to assist with facilitation and learn how to lead future training sessions.
