March 2013Vol. 14, No. 2Evidence-Based Treatments for Child Trauma

The fall 2012 issue of the Virginia Child Protection Newsletter (VCPN) focuses on evidence-based treatments for childhood trauma. The issue explores various evidence-based treatments, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and The Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI). Each treatment is accompanied, when applicable, with  available training materials, such as websites and print publications.

The 20-page issue also features a spotlight article on a community-based learning collaborative (CBLC) and describes how a CBLC is designed to bridge any gaps between a best practice and what is currently offered in the field. The impact of trauma on children and information about how child welfare workers can offer trauma-informed services are also discussed in the issue.

The Virginia Child Protection Newsletter is published by James Madison University through a contract with the Virginia Department of Social Services and is available on the university's website: (1 MB)
