USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC-ATTC)


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).
