CARHD announces Graduate Travel Support

Starting July 1, 2022, CARHD will provide one-time support to graduate students presenting CARHD project data as an author/co-author at professional conferences. We expect to be able to award funding for a limited number of travel awards of up to $500 each. Funds for 2022-23 may be used for travel that occurs after July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023. Students may only apply once for reimbursement from this fund per year; preference will be given to first-time applicants and 1st authored presentations. Applications for funds are due at least two weeks prior to travel/attendance. Please click HERE for details.

New School-Based Diversion Initiative Evaluation

We are proud to announce that beginning Spring 2022, Drs. Beth Russell and Preston Britner will collaborate with CT Children’s Health and Development Institute to evaluate the state-wide School-Based Diversion Initiative (SBDI). The multisystemic SBDI intervention seeks to support positive outcomes for high-risk youth by reducing involvement in the Department of Justice, reducing school-based mobile crisis team referrals, and reduce disciplinary infractions in the educational system. These goals are pursued through professional development training in the school system that promotes trauma-informed and restorative practices.
