NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center


KVC Health Systems has teamed up with New York University and Dr. Glenn Saxe, founder of Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) and Director of The Child Study Center at NYU Langone Medical Center, to create the NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center. This innovative training center provides expertise to professionals throughout the Midwest, promoting the use of effective trauma treatment and services for children, adolescents and families.

KVC has collaborated with Dr. Saxe on the adaptation and implementation of TST throughout its continuum of care in child welfare. Online opportunities, workshops, and at-home training options are used to train both healthcare professionals and foster family participants. Professionals working in physical and mental health, child welfare, education and juvenile justice systems are welcome to attend seminars.

The NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center is connected to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network through a grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

About the NYU Langone Medical Center
The Child Study Center  was founded in 1997 to improve the treatment of child psychiatric disorders through scientific practice, research, and education, and to eliminate the stigma of being or having a child with a psychiatric disorder. The Center has made major strides towards fulfilling the mission: its research, clinical, educational, and community services have expanded and grown in a new direction. In the face of increased threats to security and safety, the Center highlighted the importance of strengthening resilience in all children as a preventative strategy to enhance and protect their psychological wellbeing.
