Treatments and Practices

Trauma Treatments

The dissemination of standardized, effective, trauma-informed clinical interventions is a central means by which the NCTSN seeks to advance the standard of care for traumatized children.

Screening and Assessment

Trauma-informed screening and assessment practices help providers identify children’s and families’ needs early in the process and to tailor services to meet those needs.


Psychological First Aid (PFA) and Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) are promising practices for disaster behavioral health response and recovery.

Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma

The Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma (CCCT) is an innovative approach to providing mental health clinicians with foundational knowledge and case conceptualization skills.
