Helping Children in the Child Welfare System Heal from Trauma: A Systems Integration Approach

NCTSN Resource

Resource Description

Presents the results of a survey conducted among child welfare agencies in a number of states. The survey assessed the ways agencies gather, assess, and share trauma-related information and the child trauma training their staff receive. The goal was to determine how the various service systems communicate with each other about trauma and whether, alone or through interaction, they retraumatize a child or, more positively, promote a child's healing following a traumatic event.
