Partnership and Adaptation to Implement Trauma-Focused Therapy in Low Resourced Settings in the US & Latin America

Tuesday, October 26 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Clinical psychological science has developed efficacious treatments for emotional and behavioral difficulties encountered by children and adolescents, but most of the studies have been conducted by American, university-based research labs.

This presentation will describe the implementation of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in 3 separate low-resourced settings (rural South Carolina, Puerto Rico, and El Salvador) utilizing the Exploration, Preparation, Implementation, and Sustainment (EPIS) framework and guided by a community-based participatory research framework for cultural and contextual adaptation.

This program is presented in partnership with the Brown School’s Center for Mental Health Services Research and CRE²: The Latinx | Latin American Race & Ethnicity Research Unit.
