Child Trauma Research Program

Clinical Research - Training - Community Service

The Child Trauma Research Program is nationally recognized for its leadership in developing effective, family-centered interventions for children aged birth through five who experience traumatic events such as:

  • violence in the home
  • death of a loved one
  • life-threatening accidents, illnesses, or disasters.

Our team of multi-cultural, multi-lingual staff is dedicated to helping young children and families who experience traumatic events. We develop and evaluate effective treatment models, provide training across settings and disciplines, and offer direct service to children and their families.






The UCSF Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP) is now listed in the APPIC Directory under nonmembers. We are hoping to hear about member status within the next month. Our program code # for ranking is 225311.


The UCSF Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP), as the lead site of the Early Trauma Treatment Network (ETTN), has received an additional four years of funding to serve as part of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).
