Boston’s Community Based Trauma Response Network Program is an all hazards mitigation response continuum for prevention, intervention and postvention protocols after traumatic incidents to assess and intervene with children, youths, families, and their adult caregivers in Boston. Through partnerships with professional providers, school-based professionals, and community workers, a staff of three professionals, one manager and one graduate student, created the capacity to respond throughout the City of Boston to traumatic events affecting children, families, and communities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We are thrilled that Dr. Robert Macy, has accepted an invitation to come to Philadelphia to hold a learning session to inform Philadelphia’s victim services community about how Boston came to adopt and implement their community-based trauma-response program, including sharing lessons-learned and answering questions.
