Youth and Family Partnerships: Two Publications
Sometimes Youth Just Want to Be Heard! (PDF) and Youth Speak! (PDF) are two booklets that grew out of the participation of youth trauma survivors in an NCTSN meeting on youth and family engagement. In Youth Speak! young people use words and pictures to communicate their experience accessing treatment, working with therapists, and dealing with stigma. Sometimes Youth Just Want to Be Heard! offers young survivors' advice to therapists, parents, and peers. Both resources were developed by the Partnering with Youth and Families Committee of the NCTSN, with leadership from La Rabida Children's Hospital - Chicago Child Trauma Center.
