Established in 1996, the Center for Child & Family Health (CCFH) is a nonprofit, community partnership with Duke University, North Carolina Central University, and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. CCFH works at the intersection of academic research, evidence-based treatment and prevention practices, and community impact. Specific expertise includes childhood maltreatment and trauma, evidence-based practices to prevent and treat the sequelae of maltreatment and trauma, dissemination of evidence-based interventions, and integration of implementation science to promote intervention fidelity and sustained practice. CCFH has disseminated and studied evidence-based practices to improve standards of care for in NC, nationally, and internationally. Direct care includes a mental health service that exclusively uses evidence-based treatments for child traumatic stress, as well as evidence-based maltreatment prevention programs. Annually, CCFH programs directly serve more than 2,000 children. Training and dissemination increase the quality of NC’s clinical workforce that serves children affected by trauma.
The North Carolina Child Treatment Program (NC CTP), a program of CCFH, was established as a regional pilot in 2006 to train mental health clinicians in an evidence-based, child trauma model. In 2013, NC CTP was granted an annually-recurring appropriation from the North Carolina General Assembly to expand program scope and geographic reach. Currently, NC CTP trains 150 licensed clinicians per year across four evidence-based treatments; during training, clinicians offer high-quality treatment to over 500 children, birth through eighteen years of age. Following graduation, NC CTP offers graduates access to a post-training support program, advanced training opportunities, clinical consultation, and a web-based, clinical support tool.
In 2019, NC CTP received funding to launch a program to address problematic sexual behaviors (PSB) among children and adolescents (3-18 years of age). During a launch phase, NC CTP will develop a state-level, childhood PSB advisory board, train licensed clinicians in Problematic Sexual Behavior – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (PSB-CBT), support PSB treatment among children and adolescents, and begin developing a team of endorsed PSB-CBT trainers. NC CTP is seeking a PSB Clinical Program Director to lead the development, implementation, and sustainment efforts of this statewide, childhood PSB training and treatment platform.
