Presentation Type: topical discussion
Synopsis: The National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative (NCTSI), which in part includes the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), was funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Mental Health Services to improve the access to, and quality of, care available to children who have experienced traumatic life events. Federal funds were also provided to design and implement a cross-site evaluation to assess the specific and global impact of the NCTSN. This topical discussion session will include updates on the initiative and the associated evaluation, as well as an opportunity for participatory discussion around robust approaches toward the evaluation of a multi-faceted Network and consideration of whether child level outcomes are sufficient or necessary components toward understanding Network impact.
