Presentation on The Impact of Complex Trauma for Youth in Residential Care

Colleagues from the Home for Little Wanderers, Kara Sabalauskas and Michael Semel, recently presented results of our collaboration, “Understanding the impact of complex trauma for youth in residential care,” at the 2016 annual meeting of the Association of Children’s Residential Centers (ACRC), in Chicago, IL. The Home uses Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma (ITCT) and found that it significantly improves functioning for children in the program. Over three-fourths of these children, ages 6 to 19, had experienced four or more traumas.
