Dr. Chris Payne

Dr. Chris Payne (HDFS / Center for Youth, Family and Community Partnerships) received new funding from Guilford County Partnership for Children for the project Bringing Out the Best 2012-13. Bringing Out the Best builds the capacity of daycare providers, preschool teachers, directors/administrators and families to reduce behavioral challenges and support social/emotional development, according to the abstract. “This will be accomplished by: training 300 daycare providers/preschool teachers in 40 Centers/schools in early childhood competencies and evidence-based practice through individualized technical assistance as well as regular workshops; supporting directors/administrators to support these practices; screening and referring to needed services; building caregivers’ skills through in-home therapy, parenting workshops, and parent mentoring/advocacy; providing psychiatric consultation as needed; and on-site individualized or group intervention for 100 children (including capacity to serve Latino/immigrant children) and their families, impacting another 500; and coordinating with the newly established infant court mental health team.”
