NYU Langone Medical Center and KVC Health Systems Inc. Introduce First Child Trauma Training Center in Midwest

NYU Langone Medical Center and KVC Health Systems, Inc. have collaborated to create the NYU Langone Medical Center & KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center. The Center is designed to serve youth and families in the Midwest by training psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health workers serving individuals who have experienced traumatic events.

“We’re pleased to bring our proven strategies and training programs for treating traumatized children to the new joint center in the Midwest to help train practitioners who work with children who have been abused and neglected in the child welfare system, a significantly underserved population,” said Adam Brown, PsyD, clinical assistant professor, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Langone’s Child Study Center. “We hope to continue to expand this partnership effort to become a model for other organizations and health systems across the United States, and truly make an impact on the lives on these vulnerable children."
