About Curriculum

CCTI’s curriculum, Offering Healing and Hope for Children in Crisis, is a flexible, multi-module curriculum for training caregivers working with children who have experienced trauma from crisis experiences such as physical, sexual or emotional abuse, abandonment and/or exploitation.

Module l, Trauma and Crisis Care, is the core module that usually is taken first. It lays a foundation in understanding children’s response to trauma. Surrounding the “hub” are several “spokes” that examine specific trauma-producing situations. Those highlighted in yellow are completed, those in pink are underway and those in white need contributing authors.
