About the Adolescent Trauma Training Center
Funded in late 2012, the USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC-ATTC) trains mental health clinicians and disseminates information throughout the United States on the evaluation and treatment of complex trauma effects—including substance use and self-injury—in multi-traumatized, socially marginalized adolescents who come in contact with residential, community, and school mental health services, substance abuse, child welfare, and juvenile justice environments. Through web-based and in-person workshops, the USC-ATTC provides training and clinical certification on the evidence-based treatment model: Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A; Briere & Lanktree, 2013).
USC-ATTC faculty provide customized trainings to mental health providers on ITCT-A and trauma-informed clinical care topics in small, interactive, workshop-style groups. We also offer clinical trainings via live webinars as well as through an online distance learning program that can be completed at your own pace.
