Global Trauma Project was founded in order to reduce the impacts of abuse, violence, and war trauma on children, families and communities in areas where mental health supports are lacking. We do this by providing capacity-building support to local providers in trauma- healing through training, mentoring and support using the TICE framework and additional tools.
TICE has a foundation in child development, evidence-based trauma treatment (“Attachment, Regulation and Competency” ARC), Asset-Based Community Development, body-based mindfulness, and international psychosocial programming (WHO-ISAC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support.)
The TICE framework was originally developed and authored by Ilya Yacevich, MA, LMFT, through her work with the Trauma Center at JRI (Boston, USA) and Posterity Psychological Therapy and Training Center (Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.) TICE was developed with a strong background in an evidence-based trauma treatment framework called “ARC: Attachment, Regulation, and Competency” (authored by Margaret Blaustein and Kristine Kinniburgh), to address the gap in quality training and support for local providers in low-resource settings.
In 2011, in order to support local providers in Eastern Africa, Global Trauma Project was launched. GTP became an officially registered organization in Kenya in 2013, focused on ensuring local providers have a strong grounding in Understanding the Impacts Trauma, and how to strengthen Trauma-Healing Supports in areas where such supports are lacking.
The TICE Framework and training manuals are a culmination of many years’ work with talented people from across the globe who have dedicated their lives to ensuring that those who are negatively affected by various forms of trauma, violence, and abuse have access to high-quality supports that can assist in healing.
