Yale Center for Traumatic Stress and Recovery (YCTSR)
The multi-disciplinary team of the Yale Center for Traumatic Stress and Recovery (YCTSR) provides trauma-informed treatments and services to children and families, builds professional knowledge through clinical research, and advances the field of child trauma treatment through collaboration, training, and dissemination. For more than two decades, we have translated direct clinical experience and advances in scientific and practical knowledge into groundbreaking interventions for traumatized children and families.
We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of children and families who have experienced a traumatic event. When children and adolescents experience overwhelming events, some of them go on to develop symptoms of trauma including intrusive thoughts, heightened awareness, aggression, sleep disturbances, difficulty in school or other behavioral problems.
We offer a range of treatments and interventions for children and adolescents who are struggling with traumatic reactions and disorders following violent or overwhelming events.
- Acute Response, Assessment and Follow-up Coordinated Care following a potentially traumatic event
- Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI)
- Long-term trauma treatment, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and family therapy
