USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center


About the Center

Funded in late 2012, the Center trains clinicians and disseminates information throughout the United States on the evaluation and treatment of complex trauma effects – including substance abuse – in multi-traumatized, socially marginalized adolescents who come in contact with mental health, substance abuse, child welfare and juvenile justice environments.

The USC-ATTC is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (SAMHSA) grant number #1U79SM080022 as a Category II center of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). Through web-based and in-person workshops, the USC-ATTC provides training on the evidence-based treatment Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A; Briere & Lanktree, 2013).
