Mission

CTA Mission

The mission of the ChildTrauma Academy is to help improve the lives of traumatized and maltreated children — by improving the systems that educate, nurture, protect and enrich these children.  We focus our efforts on education, service delivery, program consultation, research and innovations in clinical assessment/treatment.

CTA Strategy

Essential to this process is the collaboration of all sectors of society. As such, we engage in a continuous process of identifying key partners, drawn from academia, the corporate world, private organizations and public sector systems. While each partnership has a distinct focus– identifying best practices in child protection, evaluating the latest research in child development, defining optimal ways to provide resources to parents or creating a novel therapeutic approach with traumatized children– all are engaged in the continuous process of testing, refining and distributing innovations that can improve the lives of children.
