Indian Country Child Trauma Center (ICCTC) has adapted four (4) trauma-related treatment protocols, outreach materials, and service delivery guidelines specifically adapted and designed for AI/AN children and their families. The treatment protocols, outreach materials and service delivery guidelines developed by ICCTC incorporates both common and tribal-specific Native cultural perspectives and traditions; focuses on principles of current evidence-based models; and will accommodate the substantial individual-to-individual variability in cultural identity among AI/AN people. For a fee, ICCTC provides training in the different models developed.

The four models include:
Honoring Children, Mending the Circle - cultural adaptation of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Honoring Children, Mending the Circle is the clinical application of the healing process in a traditional framework that supports the belief of American Indians and Native Alaskan culture of spiritual renewal leading to healing and recovery. Training involves a four-day intensive session, follow-up weekly case consultation, web-based training and resources.
Honoring Children, Respectful Ways - cultural adaptation of Treatment for Children with Sexual Behavior Problems. This model was developed for American Indian/Alaska Native children with sexual behavior problems and is designed to honor children and promote their self-respect as well as respect for others, for their elders, and for all living things.
Honoring Children, Making Relatives - cultural adaptation of Parent Child Interaction Therapy. ICCTC has incorporated American Indian/Native Alaskan teachings, practices, rituals, traditions, and cultural orientation into PCIT while maintaining the guiding principles and theory of this specialized treatment in Honoring Children, Making Relatives.
Honoring Children, Honoring the Future - revision of the American Indian Life Skills Development Curriculum. The American Indian Life Skills Development Curriculum (AILSDC) developed by LaFromboise (1995) used risk and protective factors specific to AI/AN youth to inform the development of prevention strategies, provided details of how culture-specific factors are related to an increased risk of suicidal behavior, and contained material for work with students at risk for suicidal behaviors as well as students in general. Revisions from high school to middle school age students have been made.
IHS and SAMHSA now have a suicide prevention app that can be downloaded by healthcare providers to help save lives.
