Opportunity for CT Schools & Providers to Implement CBITS

CHDI is pleased to announce an opportunity for providers and schools to implement Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS). CBITS is an evidence-based group intervention for children suffering from exposure to trauma, and is typically provided in school.

Through funding from the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, and in partnership with Dr. Sharon Hoover (CBITS Co-Developer), CHDI is the serving as the CBITS Coordinating Center.

  • CBITS and/or Bounce Back (a CBITS adaptation for elementary school aged children) are currently available in at least nine Connecticut communities and at more than 45 schools.
  • More than 800 children have received CBITS or Bounce Back to date with strong evidence of improved outcomes.

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.
