Center gets national funding for child trauma research
Date:9/28/2007

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has awarded a four-year $1.6 million grant to the newly established University of Kentucky Center for the Study of Violence Against Children (CSVAC). The grant, one of only 10 being presented across the nation, is going to organizations helping children and adolescents deal with traumatic experiences.

"These grants will strengthen the nation's capacity to provide help to children of all ages who experience traumatic events, such as interpersonal violence, natural disasters, or acts of terrorism," said Terry Cline, a SAMHSA administrator.

CSVAC received one of the 10 Community Treatment and Services (CTS) Center grants, which are designed to promote and evaluate effective treatment systems in community and youth-oriented settings. These grants also promote enhanced network systems for clinical, methodological, policy, financing and training issues. Each grant recipient will receive up to $400,000 per year for up to four years. Likewise, the CTS grant officially establishes CSVAC as a member of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.

"We are honored that CSVAC was chosen as one of the select group of organizations to participate in this national endeavor," said Ginny Sprang, principal investigator for the project, director of CSVAC and nationally recognized expert in trauma. "This grant will provide us with opportunities to adapt and test best practice approaches to treating traumatic stress in children exposed to violence."

As a grant recipient, CSVAC will use the federal funding to establish the Child and Adolescent Trauma Treatment Institute (CATTI), which will provide clinical training and information on evidence-based practices in eastern, western, southern and central regions of Kentucky. CATTI will present three specific intervention methods, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (used with children 2 to 12), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Thera
