The goal of the comprehensive trauma center (CTC) is to help survivors and/or victims re-empower themselves, restore wholeness and meaning, and integrate the trauma(s) they have experienced into their lives so that they are no longer at the mercy of those external events. The CTCs described in this book vary in type and form but seek to provide a variety of services to victims and/or survivors by complementing and coordinating services with existing programs.
