Project: Cross-Site Evaluation of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative (NCTSI)—NEW
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) will conduct the Cross-Site Evaluation of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative (NCTSI). The data collected will describe the children and families served by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and their outcomes, assess the development and dissemination of effective treatments and services, evaluate intra-network collaboration, and assess the Network's impact beyond the NCTSN.
Data will be collected from caregivers, NCTSN staff (e.g., project directors, researchers, and providers), mental health providers outside of the NCTSN, and non-mental health service providers who provide services to children outside of the NCTSN. Data collection will take place in 31 Community Treatment and Services Programs (CTS), 13 Treatment and Service Adaptation Centers (TSA), and 2 National Centers for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS). Data collection for this evaluation will be conducted over a four-year period.
In order to describe the children served, their outcomes, and satisfaction with services, data will be collected from youth ages 7-18 who are receiving services in the NCTSN, and from caregivers for all children who are receiving NCTSN services. Data will be collected when the child/youth enters services and during subsequent follow-up sessions at three-month intervals over the course of one year. Approximately 2,333 youth and 3,300 caregivers will participate in the evaluation.
Data will be collected for use in the development of evaluation measures that will assess the development, dissemination and adoption of trauma-informed services. These data will be collected from a total of approximately 121 NCTSN service providers, project directors and NCCTS staff. Data will be collected one time from these respondents.
Measures that collect data on development, dissemination, and adoption of trauma-informed services and other NCTSN products will be administered to approximately 1,100 service providers, 88 project directors, and 44 researchers/evaluators. These measures will be administered once per year in each of the four years of the evaluation.
To assess collaboration across the network, data will be collected from approximately 454 NCTSI staff and 54 project directors/principal investigators. The surveys associated with this data collection will be administered at varying intervals, with either one or two data collection points per respondent over the four years of the evaluation.
Product development and dissemination will be evaluated with data that will be collected from 88 project directors/principal investigators. These data will be collected annually.
To assess the national impact of the NCTSN, data will be collected from 1,600 mental health and 1,600 non-mental health service providers from outside the NCTSN. These data will be Start Printed Page 2258collected every second year over the four years of the evaluation (i.e., two data collection points per respondent).
