A comprehensive study of the post-deployment health-related needs associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury among servicemembers returning from Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, the health care system in place to meet those needs, gaps in the care system, and the costs associated with these conditions and with providing quality health care to all those in need
How schools can help students recover from traumatic experiences : a tool-kit for supporting long-term recovery( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many changes in students' performance and behavior stem from the emotional and behavioral problems that they may experience following such traumas as witnessing violence, undergoing assault or abuse, living through natural disasters, or experiencing acts of terrorism. This paper groups the programs to help support the long-term recovery of traumatized students according to the kinds of trauma they address, and describes how to select students for a program. Finally, it gives a one-page summation of each program selected. This summation describes the objective, intended population, and format of the program and provides details on implementation, personnel training and materials, and contact information."--Source other than the Library of Congress

National evaluation of Safe Start Promising Approaches : assessing program implementation( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children's exposure to violence (CEV)-- including direct child maltreatment, witnessing domestic violence, and witnessing community and school violence--can have serious consequences, including a variety of psychiatric disorders and behavioral problems, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. Fortunately, research has shown that interventions for CEV can substantially improve children's chances of future social and psychological well-being. Safe Start Promising Approaches (SSPA) was the second phase of a planned four-phase initiative focusing on preventing and reducing the impact of CEV, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). OJJDP selected 15 program sites across the country that proposed a range of intervention approaches, focused on multiple types of violence, included variations in ages and age-appropriate practices, and would be implemented in different settings. Each site participated in a national evaluation, conducted by the RAND Corporation. The evaluation design involved three components: a process evaluation, an evaluation of training, and an outcomes evaluation. This report presents the results of the first two evaluations. It describes the program and community settings, interventions, and implementations of the 15 SSPA programs for the first two years of implementation (through March 2009), as well as the training evaluation results

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors review data on the prevalence of youth mental health disorders and schools⁰́₉ use of student mental health (SMH) programs. They also describe the role of schools in addressing SMH concerns and outline a conceptual model for guiding evaluation of SMH programs. Finally, they touch on issues related to evaluation of cross-system collaborations that can influence students⁰́₉ access to resources and services and then review some of the challenges associated with evaluating SMH programs. They determine that SMH programs can be effective and can improve staff, faculty, and student knowledge of mental health problems; provide skills for identifying and referring students with mental health and social and emotional difficulties; and change attitudes toward mental health problems
Ready to serve : community-based provider capacity to deliver culturally competent, quality mental health care to veterans and their families by Terri L Tanielian( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ensuring that military veterans and their families have access to high-quality mental health care is a national priority. Over the past several years, the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs have increased the number of mental health professionals working within their facilities and have rolled out training and quality improvement initiatives designed to promote the use of evidence-based treatments. Despite these important efforts, research continues to demonstrate that many veterans prefer to seek services outside the Department of Defense and/or the Department of Veterans Affairs. Thus, providers working in the civilian sector are an increasingly important part of the overall workforce addressing veterans' mental health needs. To better understand a key aspect of our nation's ability to provide veterans and their families with access to high-quality mental health care, RAND conducted a survey of civilian mental health providers to gather information about their competency with military and veteran culture and their training and experience treating posttraumatic stress disorder and depression. This report provides the results of that survey. The findings and recommendations from this study should be relevant to individuals, organizations, and policy officials concerned about the capacity of the civilian health care sector to deliver culturally competent, high-quality services to veterans and their families

Creating healing school communities : school-based interventions for students exposed to trauma by Catherine DeCarlo Santiago( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"School systems are pressured to raise the level of academic achievement, but children who are exposed to trauma often bring a complicated set of needs to the classroom that can impact their willingness to learn, their cognitive function, their ability to form lasting relationships, and even their physical health. For school mental health providers, it can be overwhelming to find the best ways to support students who have experienced trauma and stress. School-based programs can minimize the effects trauma has on learning and help students who may otherwise not have access to such support to develop the coping skills to manage ongoing and future stress. In this volume, Catherine DeCarlo Santiago, Tali Raviv, and Lisa H. Jaycox provide the necessary "trauma-informed" tools to help struggling students and create a beneficial educational environment. The authors take a holistic approach to trauma-informed practices, and provide a practical overview of evidence-based interventions using the Multi-Tiered System of Supports model. With examples of core treatment components and engaging case studies, this book illustrates how effective school-based interventions ensure that students have the opportunity to heal from trauma and excel in the classroom and in life" -- From the publisher

Views from the homefront : the experiences of youth and spouses from military families( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States continues deployments of service members to support operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is increasingly important to understand the effects of this military involvement, not only on service members but also on the health and well-being of their spouses and youth. The purpose of this report is to examine the functioning of a sample of youth in military families who applied to a free camp for children of military personnel and to specifically assess how these youth are coping with parental deployment. The report addresses the general well-being of military youth during and after parental deployment, with attention to their emotional, social, and academic functioning. It also examines the challenges that their nondeployed caregivers face. The study includes quantitative and qualitative components: three waves of phone surveys with youth and nondeployed caregivers, and in-depth interviews with a subsample of caregivers. The researchers found that children and caregivers who had applied to attend the camp confronted significant challenges to their emotional well-being and functioning. Four factors in particular (1) caregiver emotional well-being, (2) more cumulative months of deployment, (3) National Guard or Reserve status, and (4) quality of caregiver-youth communication were strongly associated with greater youth or caregiver difficulties
Toolkit for adapting cognitive behavioral intervention for trauma in schools (CBITS) or supporting students exposed to trauma (SSET) for implementation with youth in foster care( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CBITS was developed for use by school-based mental health professionals for any student with symptoms of distress following exposure to trauma. SSET was adapted from CBITS for use by any school personnel with the time and interest to work with students affected by trauma. The purpose of this toolkit is to assist school-based mental health professionals, school personnel, and child welfare social workers in adapting these interventions for use with youth aged 10-15 who are in foster care. The authors note that delivering a school-based mental health program to youth in foster care has many challenges, including collaboration between the child welfare and education systems, confidentiality and information sharing policies regarding youth in foster care, and identification of these youth. The toolkit was designed to help understand these challenges and provide strategies for addressing them. The toolkit has three parts: a background section, an overview of CBITS and SSET, and a step-by-step guide to implementing and adapting CBITS/SSET for youth in foster care
National evaluation of the safe start promising approaches initiative, 2006-2010( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Safe Start Promising Approaches for Children Exposed to Violence Initiative funded 15 sites to implement and evaluate programs to improve outcomes for children exposed to violence. RAND conducted the national evaluation of these programs, in collaboration with the sites and a national evaluation team, to focus on child-level outcomes. The dataset includes data gathered at the individual family-level at baseline, 6-, 12-, 18-, and 24-months. All families were engaged in experimental or quasi-experimental studies comparing the Safe Start intervention to enhanced services-as-usual, alternative services, a wait-list control group, or a comparable comparison group of families that did not receive Safe Start services. Data sources for the outcome evaluation were primary caregiver interviews, child interviews (for ages 3 and over), and family/child-level service utilization data provided by the Safe Start program staff

Interventions to Prevent Suicide : a Literature Review to Guide Evaluation of California's Mental Health Prevention and Early Intervention Initiative by Joie D Acosta( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of prevention and early intervention initiatives aim to reduce the incidence of suicide, and the authors evaluate these initiatives by reviewing suicide prevention (SP) literature to learn about SP program effectiveness and the methodologies previously used to evaluate SP programs. Using evidence from the literature review, they provide an overview of the epidemiology of suicides and of non-fatal self-inflicted injuries in California and present a framework for conceptualizing SP programs. They find that identifying whether a SP program was effective at reducing suicide deaths is challenging because suicide is such a rare event. They also find that programs may have differential effects on population subgroups, because suicide rates differ by age, race, and gender. Finally, they determine that SP programs may show immediate reductions in suicide attempts but their long-term effects are uncertain
