Adjunct Professor, Department of Psychiatry
Dr. Cloitre is the Director of the Institute for Trauma and Stress at the NYU Child Study Center.
Established in 2002, the Institute seeks to identify the psychological, social and biological impact of trauma throughout childhood development and to develop appropriate prevention and intervention strategies to enhance recovery and resilience. Several programs have been established to provide empirically based assessment and intervention for children who have experienced traumatic events such as 9/11, the loss of a parent, community and domestic violence, sexual abuse and physical abuse. Each program specializes in providing intervention in different settings including not only the Child Study Center but also schools, community clinics and foster care. All programs conduct outreach education and training to mental health providers, teachers, parents and pediatricians. The Institute is also a member of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, a national group of institutions committed to raising the standard of care and improving access to services for traumatized children, their families and communities throughout the United States.
