National Action Partnership on Polyvictimization and Complex Trauma

Enhancing Multidisciplinary Responses to Polyvictimization is a national-scope training and technical assistance project to address gaps in knowledge among providers about effective trauma-informed practices for children and adults affected by polyvictimization. The NCTSN is a national collaborative of academic and community-based service centers whose mission is to raise the standard of care and increase access to services for traumatized children and their families. The project will be developed and implemented by the Trauma Center and eight other NCTSN sites across the nation.

The overall goal of the project is to disseminate effective trauma-informed practices already widely available to mental health professionals to the broader systems of care serving those affected by polyvictimization, thereby helping to overcome disparities in access to best-practice assessment and treatment. Over the 24-month project period, we will engage a minimum of 3,000 provider staff from child welfare, health care, criminal justice, corrections, youth services, education, victim advocacy and other fields involved in preventing and responding to polyvictimization.

This initiative will offer national webinars on the impact of polyvictimization, assessment tools and interventions, tailored to a range of providers beyond the mental health field; hold local and regional polyvictimization awareness events at NCTSN partner sites across the nation; create an information and technical assistance line to connect providers to high quality resources on polyvictimization; and deliver presentations on polyvictimization at three major national conferences on trauma. For more information, you can call the technical line at (617) 232-1303, x330 or email Regina Musicaro.
