Evidence-Based Assessment - Introduction
Clinicians will be trained in the use of standardized assessments to inform the delivery of mental health services to abused and/or traumatized children. The Evidence-Based Assessment training modules will train clinicians on the use of the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC), the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children (TSCYC), the Child Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI) and the Child and Adolescent Trauma Screen (CATS; event portion). NOTE: After completing the training modules, there will be a consultation phase focusing on assessments of actual clients completed by learners. Both are required since this is a skill development training, and skills are not acquired well via lecture only.
Minimum requirements to participate in the Evidence-Based Assessment Training Include:
A. Licensed or have a graduate degree in a mental health discipline allowing for licensure in your state
B. Training in an Evidence-Based Treatment model
C. Providing mental health treatment to children
