Clinicians and Other Professionals

At CTR, we believe a collaborative approach is crucial for change. We believe that all parents: foster, adoptive, alternative parents, and caregivers play a critical role as ‘experts’ in the lives of their children. For this reason, our clinical strategies focus on supporting caregivers to provide healing attachment experiences, to reduce hyperarousal and hypervigilance through “bottom-up” and “top-down” strategies, and to mentor the child in developing emotional regulation skills. We recognize weekly therapy sessions offer great therapeutic value and these are enhanced by implementing this collaborative approach.

Our conviction is that while there is a growing embrace of Trauma-Informed practices, that many of these children need a type of “Trauma-Centric” practice with a greater understanding of developmental or complex trauma as the core issue in their lives.

We take a more detailed, clinical look at trauma in the lives of a child or youth through our 7 Developmental Domains. Over the past 8 years we have seen even the most challenging children and youth respond in incredibly positive ways to our trauma-focused approaches. Our goal is to provide you with detailed information that will enhance your practice/professional services. Please consider membership with us as an individual or as part of a group. We commit to provide timely and helpful resources, case examples, blog posts, videos, and other materials to support you in your professional role.

What Professionals are Saying about CTR

“It surprised me that nice things started happening with P’s Care Team as well. The group was much less stressed and more cooperative. The CCI model seems to bring that out in people. I think part of the reason for this is that everyone has a chance to contribute, but the model itself is also quite positive as opposed to being deficit centered.”

“Yep, pretty outstanding results. Suddenly a child/youth comes alive, and is able embrace positive things rather than just react from shame and fear. Yes, that is what tells the real story, and what makes it worthwhile.”

“CCI – it changes lives, success trajectories and communities. It is the most realistic ground up approach to working with children that have experienced trauma, abuse or neglect. This system works! I have had over 10 years experience working with children affected by trauma, abuse or neglect in rural northern practice. I have watched countless children fall through the cracks as they wait for services, become numb with multiple placements, and multiple medications. But now I have seen the other side and hope that every child in care, every child that has experienced trauma, abuse, and neglect, would be supported with this program. These children learn to survive, thrive, open up, and participate in life. With simple daily interventions and strategies crossing between all environments, these children heal, develop, find pride, become understood, and find connections. These strategies and successes are long lasting.”
