Adelphia University, Institute for Adolescent Trauma Training and Treatment

Funding Period: 
[2016 - 2021 and 2012 - 2016]
Description: 

The Institute for Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training serves as a training center and resource for the delivery of evidence-based trauma-informed treatment to children and adolescents across the United States, with an emphasis on youth in residential settings, the majority of whom have been impacted by complex trauma. Building upon groundwork from previous funding cycles, the Institute is partnering with local and national agencies and service systems to: 1) intensively train multidisciplinary providers to deliver trauma-informed interventions to youth in residential settings across the United States; 2) develop and disseminate multi-media products (e.g. treatment protocols, fact sheets, workshops, webinars, youth-led videos) and specialized resources for youth, families, and providers in various types of residential settings; and 3) promote sustainability of trauma-informed practices through the development of policies, practices, and procedures that will embed trauma services within residential systems on an organizational level.

Training in several leading trauma-specific interventions used in residential settings are offered through ongoing Learning Communities. Training in client-level interventions include Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS) and Real Life Heroes (RLH), whereas systems-level training in Think Trauma, and Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) will help establish a trauma-informed organizational culture and provide foundational support for bringing in the trauma-specific clinical interventions. In addition to its extensive training activities, the Institute develops general and specialized resources for use in various types of residential settings, including intervention adaptations for settings with short-lengths of stay and for specific subpopulations such as unaccompanied refugee minors.
