The University of Connecticut Center for Trauma Recovery and Juvenile Justice (CTRJJ) brings together national leaders from CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Fordham University, New York University, the University of Utah, and the National Center for Youth Law who work with traumatized youth involved in—or at risk for—the juvenile justice and law enforcement systems. CTRJJ works nationally with the National Child Traumatic Stress Network to enable systems, providers, and organizations to adopt, adapt, and deliver strengths-focused and evidence-based trauma specific interventions.
