Six evidence-based programs have been selected for direct programming. Three programs are primary prevention, aimed at preventing the occurrence of trauma to protect children and families from experiencing harm before it occurs. The other three programs are secondary prevention, which involves early intervention with trauma-exposed children and adults to halt or slow progress of a problem in its earliest stages. Primary prevention programs to be implemented include Nurturing Parenting (NP, Family Development Resources Inc.), and Strong Relationships, Strong Families (SRSF, National Resource Center for Healthy Marriage and Families). Secondary prevention (intervention) programs include Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents (RPC, The National Child Traumatic Stress Network), Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Caregiver Training (Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development), and Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA, National Council on Behavioral Health).
