Welcome to the Complex Trauma Treatment Network Web Resource Site
The Complex Trauma Treatment Network (CTTN) is a Category II National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) Center established in 2009 to develop, adapt and disseminate evidence-based practices for children and adolescents impacted by complex trauma. The CTTN provides intensive training and technical assistance to transform systems of care. Since its inception, the CTTN has served 25 Learning Communities (LCs) comprised of identified state and multi-county child service care across 7 geographic regions. LCs are comprised of identified state and multi-county child service care continua across six geographical regions, three in each grant cycle: Northeast, Pacific Northwest, and Southern Gulf Coast in Cycle One; and Northeast, Caribbean Basin, and Pacific Southwest in Cycle Two. Each LC participates in a needs and readiness assessment, followed by a regional training on complex trauma. Over the last ten years since the CTTN began, our faculty have provided over 4500 hours of training to almost 60,000 multidisciplinary providers: mental health, education, child welfare, law enforcement, juvenile justice, legislators, judges, clergy, DV/IPV and sexual assault advocates, health care and public health, as well as consumers across 45 U.S. states and territories. This initiative directly impacts over 100,000 children and families nationwide.
CTTN Project Goals Include:
The CTTN operates through a highly efficient network with the NCTSN network design comprised of two National Coordinating Centers, the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute and Adelphi University, an Evaluation Center, Suffolk University, and three regional training hubs: University of Chicago, (Midwest); Anchorage Community Mental Health Services (Pacific Northwest); and Children’s Hospital of LA (Pacific Southwest). All CTTN sites are active or affiliate NCTSN TSA or CTS centers. CTTN Faculty members include leading scholars, treatment model developers, clinical researchers and senior trainers, practitioners and clinical supervisors in the field of complex trauma stress.
