Inthe article titled Testing the Community‑BasedLearning Collaborative (CBLC) implementation model: a study protocol,the central theme revolves around the ongoing strategies ofimplementing trauma-focused EBT in a way that makes it more and moreaccessible to children. A considerable number of both youth andchildren encounter violence throughout their lives. One of theevidence-based treatments used in such cases includes trauma-focusedcognitive behavioral therapy, an approach that has been observed toreduce and prevent adverse effects of the experiences. However, suchservices are not included as part of the standard of care. Researchstudies show that collaboration within child welfare services isessential for the improvement of availability and sustainability ofEBT. However, quite a few steps have been taken to ensure thispromotion. This paper establishes possible information thatelaborates the utilization of the CLBC model as the primary processof increasing access and application of EBTs for young children. Assuch, a collaboration between the relevant institutions andpractitioners plays a vital role in informing the outcome of thesetreatment methods, their obtainability and ease of access (Hanson etal., 2016).
Thesecond article specifically delves into the application ofEvidence-Based Parental Involvement approach. The group in questionis students who are observed as individuals requiring family support.The paper examines the practice in two regions, namely the UnitedStates and Korea. The differences that are highlighted includeevaluation, collaboration, and government assistance. Furthermore,relevant recommendations are provided, encouraging the developmentand implementation of appropriate and efficient programs, methods ofevaluating these programs as well as placing qualified personnel,collaboration and a culture that supports the unique requirements ofchildren and the youth. Based on the paper, the professionalcollaboration will not only facilitate the creation of workingprograms, but also includes family members in supporting children(Baek & Bullock, 2014). On top of that, the teamwork ensures thatmonitoring progress and feasibility of the program is adequatelyachieved.
Inthe area of community and social services, the aim is always gearedtowards building resilient communities. The services extend from theinclusion of all people, sustained economic and civic aspects of thecommunity. The primary areas of coverage extend from socialassistance to the community and development services to familyresponsibility activities [ CITATION Min16 l 1033 ].Both of the articles a section of these responsibilities. However,the first highlighted article focuses more on the developmentalservices provided to children,especially those with violence background either directly or throughwitnessing. Moreover, it studies the level of success of the EBTmodel by the partnership. On the other hand, the second article isbased on the family responsibility aspects of the programs.Additionally, the need to evaluate and compare progress with othercountries is emphasized.
Asa human service profession, the information in the research articlescan be applied in the strengthening of family programs that have beenhighlighted as the best approach for reducing risk factors whileuplifting the protective factors. In addition, the professional canplace more emphasis on the need to have well-trained staff,continuous evaluation, and support of the government and otheraffiliated institutions, all of whom have been shown to be successfultools. Likewise, the human services specialist can examine theeffectiveness of the strategies used to implement EBTs in therespective region of coverage. In this way, the extent ofavailability of the service can be determined. If not wellaccessible, then the CLBC can be put in place as it provides aplatform for integrating training of providers and strengthening themechanisms that facilitate penetration and sustainability of thetreatment method. Finally, the same strategies can be replicated inthe communities that have the urge to be part of similar educationand implementation purpose.
