Structured Sensory Trauma Interventions
Steele, William; Kuban, Caelan
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v18 n4 p29-31 2010
This article features the National Institute of Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC), a program that has demonstrated via field testing, exploratory research, time series studies, and evidence-based research studies that its Structured Sensory Intervention for Traumatized Children, Adolescents, and Parents (SITCAP[R]) produces statistically significant reductions of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) reactions and related mental health symptoms through the initial and primary use of sensory implicit strategies. TLC's mission is not just to provide training for evidence-based trauma intervention but also to provide participants with the tools needed to work successfully with traumatized children and families in their communities. TLC has trained thousands of professionals in methods that move beyond cognitive, talk therapy to create deep brain exercises of safety and trust. Through corrective sensory experiences, children learn to overcome terror and manage emotional arousal.
