C-START Project

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.

C-START has concluded with the ending of our 9-year project for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in conjunction with the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, as a Community Treatment and Services Center Category III site.SAMHSA. Kristi House is hoping to restart it with new funding in the near future.
