Welcome To Our Free Resource Section!

After years of practice and research, we are making available to you a collection of some of the most helpful resources we have found. These materials are a collection from our own CTR clinicians and field experts as well as other credible professionals who practice in the area of complex trauma. The materials are organized here loosely by topic. Part of our commitment to members is to continue adding resources to provide you with the ongoing support you need.

We ask that you respect the copyright of material on this site as well as those on other sites that we recommend to you.

Resource Information

You will notice that some of our resources are free and others will require a CTR membership to access all of the materials.

CTR is committed to assisting and supporting all of our constituents with the resources and information they need. If you require financial assistance, please contact us to discuss further.

Below you will find a catalogue of resources that we believe will give you an understanding of Complex Trauma and its effects on children and youth. These are a great starting place in understanding the impact complex trauma has on the brain and how we can better support our children in healing.
