Trauma Informed Care "Pre-Conference": Transforming the Lives of Families

The Pre-conference will take place at DePelchin Children's Center.

9:00am - 4:00pm

This Pre-Conference event will feature an advanced seminar on the Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A) by Dr. Cheryl Lanktree, Co-developer of ITCT-A and Clinical Associate Professor for the Dept of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California (USC).

ITCT-A is an evidence-based treatment that was developed to assist clinicians in the evaluation and treatment of 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.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the major effects of complex trauma on adolescents.

  • List at least three different treatment components of ITCT-A.

  • Describe the primary benefits of the therapeutic relationship in treating youths affected by trauma.

  • Become familiar with how to assess complex trauma in adolescents using guidelines and tools from ITCT-A.


Please note that this seminar is intended for people that have already had some training and/or exposure to ITCT-A as this is not an introductory course.
