Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A)
John Briere, PhD
October 20, 2017
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
This presentation will provide an overview of “Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents” (ITCT-A). ITCT-A is an evidence-based treatment that was developed to assist service providers working with adolescents who have experienced multiple forms of psychological trauma, often in the context of negative living conditions such as poverty, deprivation and social discrimination. The core components of ITCT-A include: Assessment driven treatment; attention to complex trauma issues; use of multiple treatment modalities; relational processing of early attachment schema and current interpersonal expectations; skills development; therapeutic exposure and exploration of trauma and advocacy and interventions at the system level. This training will provide an overview of the ITCT-A model and how it might be beneficial to work with youth.
6 CE Credits will be available for MFTs, LCSWs, and Psychologists.
