From the Child and Family Safety Project

to B.R.A.V.E. Teens

Clinical psychology and pediatric trainees collaborated successfully to screen and provide intimate partner violence safety planning with over 500 unaccompanied adult female caregivers presenting to the primary pediatric clinic with their children. Our subsequent project, B. R. A. V. E. Teens (Be Real About Violence Education) focused on expanding prevention services by working directly with adolescents. This project was funded by the Graduate Psychology Education Program, Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Health Professions.

The project objectives included:

•Extending graduate psychology training through the development of a primary care practicum

•Expanding training of medical trainees by pairing them with clinical psychology trainees

•Developing interdisciplinary exportable materials through an expanded website and compact disc

•Developing adolescent-appropriate, culturally sensitive screening and intervention materials
