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.

The TRI will particularly focus on using PCIT to promote effective resolution of negative behaviors that are often externalized expressions of trauma issues experienced by this population of abused and neglected children, and their families. The TRI-Center also incorporates innovative approaches to trauma screening, training, and treatment for foster parents, adoptive parents, and relative and nonrelative caregivers; and works to involve biological parents in the intervention Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in situations with a child welfare concurrent plan.
