This resource is intended to help educators understand how they might address the interplay of race and trauma and its effects on students in the classroom. After defining key terms, the guide outlines recommendations for educators and offers a list of supplemental resources. This guide is intended as a complement to two existing NCTSN resources—Position Statement on Racial Injustice and Trauma and Child Trauma Toolkit for Educators—and it should be implemented in accordance with individual school policies and procedures.
 

Children's Advocacy Center Directors' Guide to Quality Mental Healthcare
Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) directors working to meet the National Children’s Alliance (NCA) Accreditation Standard for mental health need a resource to help them on their journey to deliver the highest quality care to children and families. Especially for non-clinicians, ensuring that mental health services meet the necessary quality threshold can be challenging. How do you make the decision to offer mental health services provided through linkage agreements, or in-house? How do you monitor the quality of mental health services when you’re not in the room? What’s the difference between screening and assessment? How do these guide service provision decisions and treatment? To help answer these questions, the NCTSN and NCA have developed a web-based training resource comprising ten modules geared to help non-clinicians understand, evaluate, and manage mental health service delivery for CACs. Each module contains an easy-to-understand overview of the topic, expert interviews that further drill down into the material, and links to practical tools and resources.

This Guide was developed for youth who have experienced, or know someone who has experienced, Complex Trauma. Older youth, adolescents, and young adults can explore the information in this Guide on their own to help make sense of their experiences and understand themselves better. Clinicians, caregivers, and other adults can also use the Guide to have conversations with youth about what Complex Trauma is, how it can impact them, coping strategies that can help and those that can cause problems, and strategies for making things better.
