New Article: Breaking the Silence Trauma-informed Behavioral Healthcare

A great new article by, authors Susan Ko and Kelly Decker, “Helping Children Cast Off the Shackles of Trauma in the National Council Magazine (2011, Issue 2),” discusses how important it is for systems serving children to be trauma-informed.

It focuses on several topics:

  1. Discussing trauma-focused, child serving systems
  2. Developing skills for identifying and triaging traumatized children
  3. Providing resources and training of staff and administrators
  4. Creating a focus on Cross-System collaboration

They conclude that a trauma-informed system is a powerful way to raise the standard of care and increase access to services for traumatized children and youth.
