Jessica Bell, Sexual Assault Program Director at Beyond Abuse, recently participated in and completed Project BEST. Project BEST is a state-wide collaborative effort to use innovative community-based dissemination, training, and implementation methods to dramatically increase the capacity of every community in South Carolina to deliver evidence-supported mental health treatments (ESTs) to every abused and traumatized child who needs them. Project BEST is coordinated by the Dee Norton Lowcountry Children’s Center in Charleston, SC and the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. Bell completed a nine month training program to become qualified to provide Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT). She is also now qualified to supervise other clinicians who provide TFCBT and is listed on a roster of professionals across the state of SC that are trained in providing TFCBT. Mrs. Bell holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Lander University and a Masters in Social Work from the University of South Carolina. She recently celebrated her 10 year anniversary with Beyond Abuse.
