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 to 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 to provide consumer voice 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).
