Synopsis: The research question investigated by the study was: do trauma-informed, culturally-relevant, age-specific interventions for at-risk children ages 5 to 10, including concurrent services for mother and child, compared with services-as-usual, result in: increased self-awareness, self-worth, and self-identity; increased healthy relationships; improved self-care; and improved safety? The Children's Study was designed as an exploratory cross-site study using an intent-to-treat model, with both intervention and comparison samples at each site. The sample (n=253) consisted of a subset of mothers who participated in the Women Co-Occurring Disorders and Violence Study (WCDVS). Mother’s outcomes and intervention exposure predicted children’s outcomes under separate conditions.
