National Child Traumatic Stress Network Initiatives
The NCTSN mission is to raise the standard care and improve access to services for traumatized children, their families, and communities. We are a Community Treatment and Services Site and an Intervention Development & Evaluation Site (in partnership with the National Center on Family Homelessness.) Through these intiatives, we are working to adapt and desseminate sustainable interventions for complex trauma and school/community violence to state and local agencies, school systems, homeless-serving systems, and mental health treatment programs throughout New England.
National Child Traumatic Stress Network
The Trauma Center @ Justice Resource Institute provides community crisis intervention, trauma treatment, clinical training, and treatment outcome research for traumatized children and their caregivers. The Trauma Center focuses on specialty trauma service delivery, education, and training to assist children exposed to physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and community and political violence.
National Collaborative for Homeless Children & Trauma
To address the unmet trauma-related needs of homeless children and their parents, The National Center on Family Homelessness , the Trauma Center and other partners will form the National Collaborative for Trauma-Surviving Homeless Children (the Collaborative). The Collaborative will work to increase knowledge, both within and outside the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, about the range of trauma experienced by homeless children and their parents.
