Field Initiated Research Trauma Informed Juvenile Assessment and Treatment

Sponsor:  U.S. Department of Justice Office Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
Principal Investigator:  Dr. James Henry
Co-Principal Investigator: Dr. Ben Atchison, Dr. Chris Coryn
January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2013


An intra-country comparison group will be composed within each of the five counties and then analyzed utilizing structured equation modeling. The hypothesis is that youth who receive trauma informed interventions will have a reduction in recidivism in committing subsequent crimes, have increased academic progress, and reduced behavioral symtomology compared to those that are not participating in trauma assessment and treatment.

In year 1 KSO will pilot the Marvelous Music! program (which is aimed at preschool children and their parents) and they will need formative evaluation to examine implementation of the program, its design, and so forth. Year 2 will also be primarily formative and year 3 will be summative and include an outcome and costs evaluation.
