National Child Traumatic Stress Network
Category III Community Treatment and Services Center
The Metropolitan Boston Complex Trauma Treatment Initiative (MB-CTTI) is a SAMHSA funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) Category III Community Treatment and Services Center that was established in 2018. The MB-CTTI is a multi-tiered mobile service network focused on delivering evidence-based trauma interventions (EBPs) to high-risk and underserved complex trauma-exposed populations (e.g. trafficked and exploited youth, youth in state custody, LGBTQ+ youth, youth from military families, and urban youth of color) in order to reduce behavioral health disparities among these consumer groups. The MB-CTTI’s expert clinical staff provide individual, family, and group therapy, parent consultation and parenting workshops, and training and consultation to mental health professionals at JRI and external partner programs. Our highly trained staff utilize a number of different proven approaches for the treatment of traumatic stress among children, youth and families, including Attachment Regulation and Competency (ARC), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). In addition, our staff provide parent consultation and educational workshops using the NCTSN’s Resource Parent Curriculum, a trauma-informed parenting curriculum.
