To support the development and implementation of a Supervisor Track for the Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (“CFTSI”) at their five nationally accredited, fully co-located Child Advocacy Centers (“CACs”) which provide family-centered, multidisciplinary team responses to help children who have been sexually or physically abused. CFTSI is a brief (five to eight sessions) evidence-based mental health intervention which, over the years, has led to significantly reduced trauma symptoms in the child victims and enhanced communication between the children and their caregivers. Over the past decade, they have worked in partnership with the CFTSI model developers at Yale to train staff and for follow-up clinical consultation. As their program staff has increased significantly over the past year, through the implementation of the CFTSI Supervisor Track they will broaden and deepen their own clinical leadership’s skill in providing CFTSI supervision and help to sustain this treatment.
