In partnership with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and model developer Dr. Sharon Hoover, CHDI serves as the coordinating center for schools throughout Connecticut to provide evidence-based therapeutic intervention to students who have been affected by trauma.

Providers, schools, school-based health centers, and others offering services in school settings can receive all training, consultation, implementation support, data reporting, and quality assurance at no cost, and are eligible for performance-based incentive funding.
