NCA Accreditation – EBPs for Mental Health Standard - September 2019
The National Children’s Alliance (NCA) has established Mental Health Standards as one component of their National Standards for Accreditation* for children’s advocacy centers. Essential Component A of the Mental Health Standard requires that: Mental health services are provided by professionals with training in, and who deliver, trauma-focused, evidence-supported mental health treatment. The NCA identified several programs with research support for work to address the trauma of child sexual abuse and/or physical abuse and specify that clinicians working with CAC clients, whether on staff or by referral, should be trained in one or more of these EBPs. To assist CAC administrators and clinicians in determining which of these practices is the best fit for their needs, the CEBC produced a 2-page resource with basic information on each of these EBPs (in alphabetical order), along with links to training resources.
