An academic year position for Dr. Elissa Brown’s program, the
Child HELP Partnership. This program is located in the St.
John’s University Center for Psychological Services and was founded
on the mission of protecting children from interpersonal violence
and its emotional impact. Child HELP Partnership helps child
trauma in three ways: by preventing children’s exposure to abuse
and injury, by counseling families after a crisis, and by offering
therapy to children and caregivers with trauma-related emotional
problems. Our partnerships are with children and
parents/caregivers, colleagues in the mental health field, and
caregivers, parents, and others who interact with children
regularly. And our partnerships unite across cultures, with
all programs created to be language accessible and culturally
informed. One of the Child HELP Partnership’s current
programs is Project CONNECT (Community Networks Negotiating
Evaluations and Counseling for Trauma). Project CONNECT is an
approach developed by Child HELP Partnership to bridge science and
practice in the field of children’s mental health. Our goal
is to alleviate barriers to accessing mental health services for
traumatized families. Building on established relationships
with local multicultural communities, we are bringing the
evidence-based therapy we provide at our clinic into community
settings at no cost to the families.
