Synopsis: The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) has developed a network of trauma centers that develop evidence-based treatments and disseminate them. In this study, the level of collaboration among NCTSN trauma centers on key Network activities is examined. Results from the network analysis indicate that centers are collaborating on key activities such as governance and on developing products and are communicating frequently with each other. Major facilitators of collaboration identified included shared focus and interest of NCTSN centers. Major barriers identified included time and resource constraints and long distance communication. Implications for future research are discussed.
