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.
