The Urban Youth Trauma Center at the Institute for Juvenile Research is a Treatment and Service Adaptation Center for the National Child Traumatic Stress Network aiming to raise awareness about the needs of youth and families exposed to community violence and increase access to trauma informed services in urban communities. UYTC disseminates treatment programs specifically developed to meet the needs of urban youth and families impacted by community violence exhibiting traumatic stress, who may also be engaging in risky behaviors, including conduct problems and substance abuse. Additionally, the Center provides leadership through national and local collaborations to develop and disseminate resources for consumers, service providers, and policy makers targeting urban community violence and associated problems. Finally, UYTC develops partnerships with numerous community representatives in the Chicago area to share information and resources to improve the local community’s ability to organize and mobilize responses to community violence, as they impact youth and their families.
