Children’s Center for Resilience
and Trauma Recovery

The Rutgers Children’s Center for Resilience and Trauma Recovery (CCRTR) is a SAMHSA-funded Category III Trauma Services Training Center.

Primary goals of the CCRTR

  • To provide evidence based training, consultation, and capacity-building for existing and future New Jersey mental health providers serving children with complex trauma ages 0-10 years old.
  • To bridge the gap in providing trauma-informed training, evidence based counseling services and research data available specifically for children ages 0-10 years old who present to the New Jersey child welfare system and/or community mental health care providers.
  • To provide training in basic and advanced trauma screening and the Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC) Framework training to UBHC Child Division and NJ CSOC providers, with built in supports for ongoing consultation, as well as printed communication to educate the public about trauma and its impact on young children.
  • To work collaboratively with the ARC model developers to implement a trauma-informed learning community with our participating providers throughout the grant cycle and beyond.
