Founded in 2015, GPTICN grew from the involvement of area clinicians in the Best Practices forums for the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. It was apparent that current practices were not fully meeting the needs of the community.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is a longitudinal research conducted by The Center of Disease Control and Kaiser Permanente to assess, among other things, the impact of early childhood trauma, punitive caregivers, and physical and emotional abuse and neglect, on children. The results directly linked early childhood abuse and neglect, within the context of the family caregivers, to increased rates of adolescent substance abuse, early teen pregnancy, drop-out rates, incarceration, life-long mental illness, and chronic adult-onset illness. The good news is that interventions are possible to lessen the long term effects of ACE's, by building resiliency in families and our community for strong health living. Help us promote resiliency within our community.
