About Us

Our Mission

The mission of Trauma Institute & Child Trauma Institute, Inc. (TICTI) is:

  • to promote the healing and healthy development of children, adolescents, and adults who have experienced trauma or loss.
  • to develop, evaluate, and disseminate effective prevention, assessment and treatment methods.

Our History

Dr. Ricky Greenwald started the Child Trauma web site in 1997, and founded Child Trauma Institute (CTI) in 2002 in order to more effectively disseminate high quality training programs in trauma treatment. CTI became a Massachusetts not-for-profit corporation in 2005, and was granted federal non-profit (501c3) status as a charitable organization in 2006. The Trauma Institute (TI) name was added in 2008 to better convey the full scope of our activities, which apply to adults as well as children and teens. Dr. Greenwald’s clinical practice and intensive therapy services were merged with TICTI in 2012.

TICTI provides therapy, training, consultation, information, and resources for those who work with trauma-exposed children, adolescents, and adults. TICTI also conducts research on trauma assessment and treatment, and on its own training programs. TICTI provides this web site as a resource for clinicians, researchers, and parents. The site continues to add content, is linked by many sites, has received various awards (that we choose not to list), and currently averages about 60,000 hits per month.

TICTI developed a certification for progressive counting (PC) in 2014. TICTI started its first satellite office, in Buffalo, NY, in 2015, added Greensboro, NC in 2016, and northern CA in 2019.
