Description: 
The University of Kentucky Research Foundation/Child and Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training Institute (CATTTI) is housed at the University of Kentucky's Center on Trauma and Children. CATTTI provides services to children and families who have experienced a wide range of traumatic exposures and works closely with child serving systems of care to build community capacity to identify and serve traumatized children in need.

CATTTI also emphasizes training and service delivery in an under-resourced region of the state that includes a large number of military children associated with Fort Knox and Fort Campbell, and is working toward improving access, rates of attrition, and quality in prevention and intervention service delivery. Evidence-based interventions provided through the CATTTI project include Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) and will be expanding to include Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS) and Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy (TARGET). CATTTI employs workforce development strategies that include training initiatives, including the NCTSN’s Caring for Children who have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents, develops resources related to preventing and addressing Secondary Traumatic Stress, and uses the Core Curriculum for Child Traumatic Stress to prepare and train child psychiatry residents and fellows.

Children's Research Triangle, Trauma Treatment Program: Increasing Trauma Services for Youth

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021, 2012 - 2016 and 2009-2012]
Description: 
Children's Research Triangle's Trauma Treatment Program (TTP) is an assessment-driven, trauma-informed intervention program based in Chicago, Illinois. The TTP increases the availability of trauma-informed therapeutic services for children and adolescents ages 0-18 years by implementing evidence-based interventions in under-resourced communities. The TTP improves community members’ ability to understand and respond to the needs of traumatized youth by providing training on the impact of trauma on youth. The children and families served come from a broad population in the Chicagoland area, encompassing a diverse range of ages, culture, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. A high standard of care is ensured by ongoing training, consultation, and reflective supervision for TTP staff and partner site staff, as well as continuous input from our consumer groups in the development and implementation of services. The TTP works in multiple under-resourced community settings, requiring the use of a variety of treatment interventions to best meet the needs of the clients served. Consequently, the TTP employs several Evidence-Based Practices, including Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS).
