Dr. Briere will provide an overview of Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents.

The treatment approach was developed to assist clinicians in the evaluation and treatment of adolescents who have experienced multiple forms of psychological trauma, often in the context of negative living conditions such as poverty, deprivation and social discrimination. A copy of the treatment guide will be made available to attendees to read prior to the workshop.

The core components of ITCT include: Assessment driven treatment; attention to complex trauma issues; use of multiple treatment modalities; relational processing of early attachment schema and current interpersonal expectations; skills development; therapeutic exposure and exploration of trauma and advocacy and interventions at the system level. ITCT has been listed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network as a trauma-informed intervention.

How to Conduct a Community-Based Learning Collaborative

Date: 
Friday, February 21, 2014
Time: 
8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Location: 
Charleston, SC
Sponsoring Agency: 
The Project BEST Planning Team
Description: 

A Community-Based Learning Collaborative (CBLC) is a 10-14 month intensive training, skill building, and structured community implementation process for Evidence Supported Treatments (ESTs). In a CBLC, professionals from several communities, including mental health treatment providers, brokers of mental health services, senior leaders and other community stakeholders, work together to build and sustain their community’s capacity to provide an EST. A CBLC combines clinical and practice training, implementation, and activities for building community collaboration and coordination in service delivery.

This workshop is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and materials needed to conduct a CBLC. Participants will learn: 1) the rationale underlying the CBLC approach; 2) the elements of the CBLC; 3) the logistics and process of a CBLC; 4) the role of collaboration in improved outcomes for children; and 4) lessons learned by the Project BEST team. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences with training and implementation, and ideas about using the CBLC approach in their communities.

WHO: Community professionals interested in using the CBLC approach

WHEN: Friday, February 21, 2014 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

WHERE: The Dee Norton Lowcountry Children’s Center, Charleston, SC
