Dr. Amelio D’Onofrio recently received a two-year training grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for his Structured Interventions Program for Inner City (NYC) Students and Parents Exposed to Chronic Stress (aka: In-School Traumatic Stress Treatment Program (ISTSTP)).
The grant will fund doctoral students in the Counseling Psychology program in a two-phase project.
- Phase I consists of intensive training in the treatment of children and adolescents exposed to complex forms of traumatic stress.
- Phase II consists of the assessment, triage, and provision of treatment services through an in-school treatment program at underserved NYC schools.
The grant will fund students interested in developing an expertise in the treatment of trauma.
