Universal Trauma-Informed Family Services: Interrupting the Intergenerational Transmission of Adversitychildparent

Presented by Dimitri Topitzes, LCSW, PhD, Joshua Mersky, MSW, PhD, Jeffrey Langlieb, MPH, Fiona Weeks, MPH, Margaret Gesner, MS

The intergenerational transmission of adversity and trauma represents a primary threat to public health and social welfare in the 21st Century. One promising means to address the generational transfer of trauma is through early childhood home visiting interventions. These programs provide mothers with assessment, referral, and supportive services pre- and post-partum, but unfortunately suffer from high refusal and dropout rates and often do not address trauma directly. To overcome these shortcomings, the authors have adapted a universal brief home visiting model (Family Connects) to a local service context, and have integrated within the model an innovative trauma screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (T-SBIRT) protocol. The authors will describe both the Family Connects model and the T-SBIRT protocol, and will also elaborate on the three phases of the local pilot project: implementation, testing, and dissemination.
