The purpose of the Trauma-Informed Interventions: Clinical and Research Evidence and Culture-Specific
Information Project was to identify trauma-focused interventions that have been developed and applied
to trauma-affected youth populations of various cultural backgrounds and to describe their level of
cultural competence and the level of clinical and research evidence supporting the treatment. Work on
this project has revealed that significant groundwork has been established in this area by clinicians
and researchers working directly with trauma-affected culturally diverse populations.
