Abstract: The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and its various centers have developed and implemented a range of clinical treatments, mental health interventions, and other trauma-informed service approaches as a means of promoting the Network’s mission of raising the standard of care for traumatized youth and families This webpage provides links to fact sheets on the evidence-based and evidence-supported trauma-informed clinical interventions. The Intervention Fact Sheets include basic descriptive information about the intervention, the target population for which it was developed, essential components, and a summary of research evidence. For some interventions, additional fact sheets are also available, including: Culture-Specific Fact Sheets that describe how the intervention engages children and families from diverse populations and has been successfully modified for use with different groups, and Training Guidelines that describe minimum training requirements, including preparation and case completion requirements, as well as prerequisites needed to supervise or train on the intervention. In addition, information is provided on how to use the fact sheets and core components of trauma-focused interventions. (Author abstract modified)
