Families Learning about Recovery Strategies (FLARES) National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative Evaluation

The Children’s Advocacy Services of Greater St. Louis (CASGSL) at the University Of Missouri-St. Louis was awarded a $1.6 million four-year grant in 2012 to develop and disseminate an innovative program, FLARES, where caregivers and their children concurrently receive evidence-based traumatic stress reduction services.  The first years of the grant have been dedicated to developing and pilot-testing the program.  The MIMH is providing data management services as well as process and outcome evaluation of their statewide learning collaborative.  Results of the evaluation are being used to provide the program team with feedback on the effectiveness of FLARES as it is implemented in communities across the state.
