Trauma and Grief Component Therapy for Adolescents (TGCTA) and Think Trauma Toolkit Training
Monday, January 13, 2014 - Thursday, January 16, 2014
The Center for Trauma Recovery and Juvenile Justice
Trauma and Grief Component Therapy for Adolescents (TGCTA) is an evidence-based group treatment program designed to reduce posttraumatic emotional and behavioral reactivity while improving pro-social skills and citizenship in adolescents exposed to multiple forms of trauma (e.g. community violence, family violence, child abuse), and loss (e.g. death of family or loved ones). Studies have shown that youth in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems are at particular risk for both trauma- and grief-related difficulties. The modular design of this program enables it to be customized for the needs of specific groups. The newly revised grief treatment module is aligned with forthcoming DSM-V definitions of Bereavement-Related Disorder and Traumatic Death. The training will provide instruction on the theory and research underlying the treatment model and then devote the bulk of the time to hands-on demonstration and practice of the core components and interventions. Break-out sessions will focus on adaptation of the program to specific populations and concrete steps to implement the program in the juvenile justice system, schools, and community-based programs.
Think Trauma: A training Curriculum for Staff in Juvenile Justice and Residential Settings is a modularized, skills-based, interactive, trauma-informed training curriculum for staff who directly work with youth in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The presentation contains four 60-90 minute modules that address the following general topics: 1) the relationship between trauma and delinquency; 2) the impact of traumatic stress on development; 3) survival coping strategies; and 4) organizational stress and vicarious trauma. The curriculum takes the participants on an exploratory journey of a youth's life. There are six case vignettes, and each subgroup of six participants is assigned to one youth. Each subgroup member is given some information about the youth, and the team will have to work together to identify the youth's traumas, trauma reminders, traumatic reactions, and their developmental impact in order to develop a safety plan that includes coping strategies.
