Center for the Advancement of Critical Time Intervention (CACTI)
- New York
Critical Time Intervention (CTI) is a time-limited evidence-based practice that mobilizes support for society's most vulnerable individuals during periods of transition. It facilitates community integration and continuity of care by ensuring that a person has enduring ties to their community and support systems during these critical periods. CTI has been applied with veterans, people with mental illness, people who have been homeless or in prison, and many other groups. The model has been widely used on four continents.
The Center for the Advancement of Critical Time Intervention (CACTI) was established in 2014 at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College to support the broad dissemination of the CTI model and to ensure quality and fidelity in its implementation. The Center serves a dual purpose:
• It is a central hub for news about CTI programs, research projects, upcoming trainings,
publications, conferences, webinars and other helpful information;
• Through the Global Network, the Center promotes collaboration among CTI practitioners, trainers,
and researchers on promising adaptations and enhancements to the model.
