- About Us
KVC Health Systems is committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services, and education.
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.
