    ISTSS Webinar - Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A)

    John Briere, PhD
    Tuesday, May 19, 2015
    1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Central Time


    Description

    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 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.
     

    Learning Objectives

    • Identify the major effects of complex trauma on adolescents.
    • List at least three different treatment components of ITCT-A.
    • Define how to assess complex trauma in adolescents using guidelines and tools from ITCT-A.
