The Trauma Treatment Training Center / TTTC is a collaboration of the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children and The Childhood Trust at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
The Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children is a child advocacy center dedicated to prevention, evaluation, treatment and research of child abuse and neglect. The center includes physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, child protection workers and law enforcement professionals.
The Childhood Trust is a joint effort of Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati that offers training and consultation on the intervention and treatment of child abuse and family violence.

The Trauma Treatment Training Center / TTTC begins by selecting a model to disseminate. The TTTC looks at current evidence-based treatment models in the field. To be implemented successfully, treatments must:
Once a model is selected, training materials are prepared and the first training session occurs. Upon completion of training, TTTC staff provide follow-up consultation to trainees until they reach competency. Not only does research inform practice, but practice informs practice. Trainees who take treatments back to their agencies and use them with their clients know what works and what does not and can help us understand why. These clinicians can also provide insight into how training could be improved or revised based on their clinical experiences with the model. Their feedback is integrated into the model for the next replication cycle and the process of preparation and training begins again.
Continuous quality improvement is embedded into every dissemination cycle in an effort to make each treatment model adaptable and usable in a variety of settings with a variety of client populations while remaining faithful to model fidelity.
In addition to training and providing follow-up consultation to clinicians, the TTTC works with agency supervisors to implement the model, maintain fidelity to the model and build training capacity within the agency. The TTTC collaborates with agency administrators around issues of billing and sustainability, as well as with third-party payers to recognize models as billable therapies to ensure agency reimbursement. This information offers insight about a model's impact in an agency at every level.
In collaboration with model developers and other practitioners in the field, this continuous quality improvement loop allows us to refine treatment models, and learn how these models are trained and implemented in real-world settings. This replication process is repeated until an Implementation Toolkit can be developed. Using this toolkit the TTTC then works with other centers to develop local training programs of their own.
