Psychosocial Initiatives

In collaboration with our partners at Urban Improv, and Occupational Therapy Associates, the Trauma Center offers a number of psychosocial initiatives for clients, communities, and multi-disciplinary providers. These diverse initiatives range from national disaster response and technical assistance, to early intervention programming and theater-based youth violence prevention. The common threads of these services are their core emphases on strength and resiliency based programming and their utilization of "Train the Trainer" dissemination approaches that build local capacity to establish and sustain services that can be adapted to meet the culturally specific needs of unique clients and communities.
