Cue-Centered Therapy

Press and Publications


Clinicians at Stanford School of Medicine have been practicing Cue-Centered Therapy (CCT) since 2012. Since its inception, researchers have been conducting randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of CCT to measure its effectiveness. To date, two RCTs studying CCT have been completed. These studies demonstrate CCT effectiveness in reducing child and caregiver posttraumatic stress and in improving child functioning (Carrión et al., 2013; Espil et al., 2022). Researchers in the Early Life Stress and Resilience Lab in the Stanford School of Medicine have recently launched a third treatment trial of CCT to examine the efficacy of CCT on youth impacted by natural disasters and pandemic challenges.


International Work

Cue-Centered Therapy resonates with mental health professionals and their clients around the world. As of 2022, CCT has reached people in 38 countries and in 24 states in the United States of America.

Teaching at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel

by Hilit Kletter, PhD

In summer 2019, I was invited to teach at the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. This was an exciting opportunity for me to get to teach in my native homeland. It also allowed me to continue collaborating with Israeli colleagues whom I first met when our lab hosted a workshop on youth exposed to war and terror.
