The translational work carried out by the Center on Trauma and Children is organized  around a central theme, and collaborative efforts and interaction among independent projects and their investigators to achieve a common goal. These projects involve:


  • Mechanistic studies designed to identify predictors of adverse outcomes in children exposed to maltreatment, traumatic events and violence
  • Behavioral health services outcome research
  • Community-based participatory research
  • Translational studies on the efficacy and effectiveness of tools and interventions to address secondary traumatic stress and related conditions
  • Epidemiological research on the incidence and prevalence of maltreatment trauma and violence against underrepresented subgroups of children
  • Implementation studies designed to understand how evidence-based practices are implemented and taken to scale
