Child Trauma Training Center (CTTC)
The CTTC is a statewide program within the Department of Psychiatry, UMass Medical School funded by a 5-year Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) from 2016-2021, funding from the Department of Mental Health and the Lookout Foundation.
Goals of CTTC
We provide a variety of trainings in childhood trauma to help develop, enhance and strengthen the ability of child-serving professionals to identify and screen for trauma-related symptoms, and to make referrals to evidence-based trauma treatments. Professional groups we collaborate with include: pediatricians and medical professionals, law enforcement, courts, attorneys, schools, child welfare, advocacy groups, and others. Please contact Genevieve Kane-Howse, LMHC at Genevieve.email@example.com with any questions related to TIC trainings.
We have established a toll-free number (1-855-LINK-KID) for families and the community to streamline the link between children in need of evidence-based trauma treatment and mental health providers who have been trained in these treatments. We are able to make referrals to treatment for ages 0-22. Treatments include Trauma-Focused Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC), Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Alternatives for Families: Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT).
