This webinar will detail how National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) researchers and practitioners with expertise in complex trauma and children partnered with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the New York State Department of Health to establish complex trauma in children as an eligible condition for health home coverage. This translation of research and practice into policy provides an enhanced treatment and financing benefit for children exposed to complex trauma. Learn how New York State put this concept into practice and generated a complex trauma referral workflow for this population of children.

Sponsored by the NCCTS Policy Program and the NCTSN Policy Task Force.

Monday, March 13, 2017
Time: 
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Location: 
Baltimore, MD
Description: 

Somatic Experiencing, the life’s work of Peter Levine Ph.D, is a body oriented approach used to heal trauma and other stress disorders. Somatic Experiencing is a powerful psychobiological method for addressing physical and emotional trauma and other stress related conditions. Complex trauma impacts one’s ability to self regulate on emotional and behavioral levels. Somatic Experiencing offers a framework to assess where a person may be stuck in the flight, fight or freeze responses. This training will allow attendees to enhance their knowledge of the theory behind Somatic Experiencing, gain useful treatment tools and strategies to integrate into their current clinical practice with the trauma population.

The positive effects of PMTO have been referenced by the American Psychological Association in its report to lawmakers and policy-makers "Gun Violence: Prediction, Prevention, and Policy" (December 2013): "Prevention research has shown that intervening with at-risk families to improve parenting skills can disrupt the pathway from early-onset aggressive behavior to delinquency in adolescence (Patterson, Forgatch, & DeGarmo, 2010)." PMTO, listed as an effective program on NREPP, engages parents/adult caregivers as the agents of change to strengthen resilience of traumatized children from preschool to adolescence. The intervention can be delivered in individual family (treatment) or multi-family group (prevention) formats) and can be delivered in homes, clinics, schools, or community settings. PMTO facilitator training, using the Learning Collaborative Model, occurs in two, free, in-person workshops at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, with on-going coaching following the trainings. Facilitators do not need to be licensed clinicians but ideally will come to train in groups of 2 to 3 providers. Training faculty include Drs. Abigail Gewirtz, Laura Rains, and Molly Willer.
