Childhood Trust

  • Childhood Trust

    The Childhood Trust is a joint effort of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, the University of Cincinnati and concerned citizens dedicated to stopping the pain of child abuse through innovative and professional education, evaluation and treatment for victimized children and their families. The Childhood Trust is also committed to educating professionals and the community about child abuse.

    The Childhood Trust is composed of a number of individuals from Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati Department of Psychiatry, who bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in child abuse from around the nation. These individuals focus on bringing cutting-edge techniques, research, programming and information to Greater Cincinnati through three interrelated areas: treatment, training and evaluation.

    The following programs are available through the Childhood Trust:

    • Strategic Humane Intervention Program / SHIP
    • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) | No trainings scheduled at this time

    Each program makes a unique contribution to stopping the pain of abused children by supplementing existing programs in our community and providing support and skills for professionals.
