The University of Southern California Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC-ATTC) trains clinicians and disseminates information throughout the U.S. on the assessment and treatment of complex trauma effects in socially marginalized and ethnically-diverse adolescents, including those with, or at risk for, substance abuse, suicide, and self-injurious behavior. Clinicians receiving training and products include those in mental health, school, substance abuse, child welfare, residential, juvenile justice, and military intervention service systems. USC-ATTC disseminates treatment guides, tools and information on its evidence-based, multi-component treatment, Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A), including the ITCT-A Treatment Guide, 2nd Edition, and the standalone guide “Treating Substance Use Issues in Traumatized Adolescents and Young Adults: Key Principles and Components,” available at the USC-ATTC website:http://keck.usc.edu/adolescent-trauma-training-center
. Two additional treatment guides are in progress: “Treating Suicidality and Self-Injurious Behaviors in Traumatized Youth” and “Mindfulness Training for Traumatized Adolescents.” USC-ATTC is developing an ITCT-A certification program, and a Train-the-Trainer program to more widely disseminate ITCT-A throughout the NCTSN and beyond. It is collaborating with other TSAs to develop and disseminate materials and co-conduct trainings on preventing and treating suicidality, self-harm, and substance abuse in juvenile justice and mental health systems, and works with TSA and CTS centers to increase their capacity to provide culturally sensitive services for traumatized youth. Consultations are provided to individual centers and groups of centers, nation-wide, on adaptations and implementations.
