Center Library
  • NRC Library
  • The Library is located at the National
    Resource Center (NRC) for Child Traumatic Stress
    in Durham, North Carolina. The NRC is part of the
    National Center for Child Traumatic Stress,
    jointly coordinated by the medical schools at the
    University of California at Los Angeles and Duke
    University, with offices in LA and NC. The
    Center provides leadership for the National Child
    Traumatic Stress Network. There are currently 54
    centers in the Network throughout the United
    States. Funding for the Network is provided by
    the Center for Mental Health Services, Substance
    Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration,
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,
    through the Congressional Donald J. Cohen
    National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative.

History of the Network
  • The Donald J. Cohen National Child Traumatic
    Stress Initiative was established in 2001 to
    improve access to care, treatment, and services
    for children and adolescents exposed to traumatic
    events and to encourage and promote collaboration
    between service providers in the field, through a
    series of grants totaling more than 30 million.
  • Cohen, a pioneer in the field of children's
    mental health, was the Sterling Professor of
    Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Psychology at
    Yale University and Director of the Yale Child
    Study Center. He died on October 2, 2001.

Network Mission
  • To raise the standard of care and improve access
    to services for
  • traumatized children, their families and
    communities throughout
  • the United States.

Network Vision
  • The NCTSN will raise public awareness of the
    scope and serious impact of child traumatic
    stress on the safety and healthy development of
    our nation's children and families.
  • We will improve the standard of care by
    integrating developmental and cultural knowledge
    to advance a broad range of effective services
    and interventions that will preserve and restore
    the future of our nation's traumatized children.
  • We will work with established systems of
    care, including the health, mental health,
    education, law enforcement, child welfare and
    juvenile justice systems, to ensure that there is
    a comprehensive continuum of care available and
    accessible to all traumatized children and their
  • We will be a community dedicated to
    collaboration within and beyond the Network to
    ensure that widely shared knowledge and skills
    create a national resource to address the problem
    of child traumatic stress.

National Child Traumatic Stress Network
  • 54 Centers in the Network throughout the Unites
  • Three components
  • Category I
  • Category II
  • Category III

Category I
  • National Center for Child Traumatic Stress
  • Designated to lead the NCTSN as the National
    Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS), the
    UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and the Duke
    University School of Medicine have individually
    and collectively provided leadership in the
    developmental understanding of child traumatic
    stress, have pioneered evaluation and treatment
    of children, families, and communities, and are
    at the forefront in developing public mental
    health strategies to reach the large population
    of children, families, and communities affected
    by traumatic events. The National Center for
    Child Traumatic Stress, as a joint program of
    UCLA and Duke University, is supported by the
    vast resources of two of the country's preeminent
    learning institutions, their medical schools, and
    departments of psychiatry and university-level

Category II
  • Intervention Development and Evaluation Centers
  • Intervention Development and Evaluation
    (IDE) Centers are charged with identifying,
    supporting, improving, and developing treatment
    and service approaches for different types of
    child and adolescent traumatic events. IDE
    Centers emphasize developmentally appropriate
    trauma evaluation and intervention for children
    and adolescents of all ages, as well as the
    identification, assessment, and appropriate
    treatment of children in specialty child service
    sectors, such as schools, the juvenile justice
    system, the refugee service system, and the child
    welfare and protective service systems.

Category III
  • Community Treatment and Services Centers
  • The third category of grantees, Community
    Treatment and Services Centers, will implement
    and evaluate effective treatment and services in
    community settings, collect clinical data on
    traumatized children receiving treatment, develop
    expertise related to effective practices,
    financing and other service issues, and provide
    leadership and training on child trauma for
    service providers in the community and staff in a
    range of child service sectors.

NRC Mission
  • The National Resource Center for Child Traumatic
    Stress (NRC) supports the National Child
    Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) by raising
    professional and public awareness and knowledge
    of child traumatic stress through providing
    relevant, practical information that promotes
    improved standards of care and increased access
    to services of affected children, their families
    and communities.

NRC Vision
  • The NRC is to be the leading national resource
    for professionals, the public, and people
    affected by child traumatic stress through
  • Acquisition, coordination, and management of
    existing materials in the field of child
    traumatic stress.
  • Development and production of initiatives
    and products within the NCTSN, including
    initiatives in education, training, technical
    assistance, data collection, marketing, and media
  • The widespread distribution of the
    resources, services, and products of the NCTSN.
