The Safe Babies Court Team™ (SBCT) approach focuses on healing the experiences of maltreatment and subsequent trauma among young children in the child welfare system. An evaluation of sites across several states found positive results and child welfare outcomes were promising when compared to national estimates or federal standards. Most children were safe, experienced only one or two placements, and, along with their parents, received needed services, including evidence-based programs like Child-Parent Psychotherapy.
