C-START began in 2012 and is focused on building Miami-Dade’s capacity to deliver evidence-based interventions for child trauma and grief. C-START uses the Community-Based Learning Collaborative (CBLC) training model to engage multiple stakeholders in a community change team. Through a yearlong training, this team learns how to appropriately screen children for trauma symptoms, refer to services, and monitor and deliver trauma-informed treatment from nationally certified trainers.
Past trainings have included Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Trauma-Focused Evidence-Based Case Management, Problematic Sexual Behavior – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (PSB-CBT), Risk Reduction through Family Therapy (RRFT), and TF-CBT modified for sex trafficking survivors.
Participants who complete all training requirements are rostered by C-START, indicating their knowledge and experience using trauma-informed practices with children and families. A list of C-START rostered participants is below,
**In order to apply for the Trauma Practices Collaborative, you must be part of an agency team and have a senior leader/supervisor registering for the training along with your team**
Registration for the 2020 C-START training has closed. Check back in December 2020 for details about future trainings.
