Help create a Business Plan and Delivery Model for Video Training Series
Victor Carrion, MD, associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral science at Stanford University School of Medicine, is leading the way in treating and studying children with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As the director of the Stanford Early Life Stress Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital/Stanford Medical School, Dr. Carrion has provided care for more than fifteen years to children who have experienced traumatic stress. In addition, Dr. Carrion has conducted multi-disciplinary research on the behavioral, academic, emotional, and biological late effects of experiencing trauma. Using early life stress as an anchor, Dr. Carrion is investigating, through longitudinal studies, the effects of childhood trauma on brain development and function.
Through his work to date, Dr. Carrion has identified unique pediatric manifestations of PTSD and has developed methods to assess and treat this condition.
Dr. Carrion has developed a treatment, The Stanford Cue-Centered Treatment (CCT) Protocol (the Manual). The Stanford CCT Protocol is a short-term psychosocial treatment approach for children and adolescents who have been exposed to trauma. The manual is founded upon the principle that trauma exposure can cause cognitive, emotional, physiological, and behavioral symptoms, all of which interact with one another. Re-exposure to traumatic reminders (cues) can cause exacerbation of these symptoms.
Dr. Carrion determined that a video training series for CCT would effectively complement the manual as a means to train hundreds of mental health professionals throughout the US and the world. Dr. Carrion worked with an award winning documentary producer/director to develop the 7 part CCT video training series. Dr. Carrion will also play a key role in producing the video series.
The center needs help in determining a business plan for this delivery model – who is the target audience, how do we reach them, what is the certification process, how will they use this video training, what are the financial aspects.
