Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $119,107)

The purpose of the FY 2014 Youth with Sexual Behavior Problems (YSBP) Program is to assist communities in developing a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive approach to providing treatment services and community supervision for youth with sexual behavior problems (SBP). Projects funded under this program will focus on developing an intervention model that addresses interfamilial and/or co-residential sexual misconduct by youth ages 10 to 14, and provide adjunctive support services to child victims and families of these youth. The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center will serve as the training and technical assistance provider.

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will implement this project in two phases over a 36-month period. It will work closely with OJJDP's existing training and technical assistance provider during both phases of the project. The first 12 months of the project (Phase 1) will be a dedicated planning year during which the grantee and the training and technical assistance provider will assess the tribe's current interventions and practices for youth with SBP and develop a comprehensive and culturally relevant intervention model for these youth, their child victims, and their families. Over the remaining 24 months (Phase 2), it is anticipated that based on performance, the grantee will implement the program created during the planning year. This program will include a culturally appropriate mental health program and a public awareness and outreach campaign. CA/NCF

The Youth with Sexual Behavior Problems (YSBP) program assists communities in developing a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive approach to responding to youth with sexual behavior problems their child victims and their families. YSBP program funding supports evidence-based treatment and community supervision to prevent re-offending. Funding also supports treatment and family support services to address trauma and support healing for child victims and their families. The YSBP program consists of project sites that develop and implement a community based intervention model and a training and technical assistance provider that supports the project sites.

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe was selected as the tribal project site under this solicitation and received funding to implement their project in two phases over a 36-month period. During Phase I, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, the training and technical assistance provider and project partners were to assess the Tribe's current interventions and practices related to youth with sexual behavior problems and develop a comprehensive and culturally relevant intervention model for these youth, their child victims, and their families. Assessment and planning would include identification and adaption of a treatment curriculum that includes best practices and accounts for the unique characteristics, traditional practices, and culture of the Tribe. During Phase II, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe will leverage current partnerships and work with other agencies to identify and support families of youth through a multi-disciplinary approach; provide training and technical assistance to first responders on the newly developed system and protocols developed by the multi-disciplinary team; and implement a public awareness campaign to increase knowledge among members of the community related to child sexual abuse.
