Center for Resilient Families
About This Show
Show Info: A growing body of research has shown how working with parents can improve mental health outcomes for children exposed to traumatic stress, and many research-tested programs have been developed and and have proven effective in strengthening families’ responses to traumatic stress. However, few of these existing, research-tested interventions are making it into practice. The Center for Resilient Families (CRF) aims to bring these research breakthroughs into practice for parents across the country. CRF aims to implement trauma-informed parenting programs in settings where families already are — school, community centers, homes, online. By training a variety of professionals to work with families, we can reduce the unmet need for mental health treatment and better serve children exposed to traumatic stress.
