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.
