Trauma focused treatment and Culture

School based trauma focused treatment for Latino/Hispanic youth
Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) was developed by Dr. Lisa Jaycox and colleagues. CBITS is a school based group intervention for children with violence-related mental health symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. CBITS was developed from empirical data on the effects of trauma on Latino/Hispanic and immigrant youth.

PCIT with Mexican American Families
Guiando a Niños Activos (Guiding Active Children, or GANA) – Created by Dr. Kristen McCabe, the GANA program is a version of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) that has been culturally adapted for Mexican-American families. Information from clinical and empirical literature in addition to qualitative data gathered from focus groups and interviews with Mexican-American families were used to generate a list of potential modifications to PCIT, which were then reviewed by a panel of expert therapists and clinical and mental health researchers.
