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

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

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a practical overview and guide for school mental health providers working with students who have been exposed to trauma. It discusses the three levels of intervention strategies as is consistent with the multi-tiered system of supports framework: universal (Tier 1) strategies designed to improve outcomes for all students, targeted (Tier 2) strategies aimed at selected students, and intensive (Tier 3) interventions. The book commences with reviews of trauma exposure among children and adolescents, describing the impact of this exposure on students' mental health, behavior, learning, and physical health. It provides a rationale for school-based interventions highlighting how many students do not get treatment elsewhere. The book reviews universal or school wide interventions that can support students exposed to trauma, including strategies for developing trauma-sensitive classrooms and schools. It discusses strategies that can be used by school mental health providers prior to implementing a targeted intervention in their school, such as partnering with teachers and administrators and identifying students for intervention groups. The book then summarizes the key components of evidence-based interventions, using case vignettes to illustrate how different skills may be implemented. After a review of Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions for trauma in schools and the current level of evidence for such interventions, the book highlights some common considerations and challenges faced by school mental health practitioners along with strategies for overcoming them. Implementing trauma interventions in schools can ensure that students receive needed treatment that they are unlikely to access outside of school."--Preface.

The war within : preventing suicide in the U.S. military by Rajeev Ramchand( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The increase in suicides among military personnel has raised concern. This book reviews the current evidence on suicide epidemiology in the military, identifies state-of-the-art suicide-prevention programs, describes and catalogs suicide-prevention activities in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and across each service, and recommends ways to ensure that the activities in DoD and across each service reflect state-of-the-art prevention science
Interventions to Prevent Suicide : a Literature Review to Guide Evaluation of California's Mental Health Prevention and Early Intervention Initiative by Joie D Acosta( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
Ready to serve : community-based provider capacity to deliver culturally competent, quality mental health care to veterans and their families by Terri L Tanielian( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 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
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 0 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
Invisible wounds of war : summary of key findings on psychological and cognitive injuries by Lisa Jaycox( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My testimony will briefly discuss the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, as well as the incidence of traumatic brain injury among service members returning from Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom; the costs to society associated with these conditions and of providing care to those afflicted with these conditions, and the gaps in the care systems designed to treat these conditions among our nation's service members and veterans. These findings form the basis of several recommendations which will be presented in the testimony of my colleague, Terri Tanielian. Together, Ms. Tanielian and I co-directed more than 30 researchers at RAND in the completion of this study and our testimony is drawn from the same body of work
