(PDF Download) Developing a Trauma-Informed Child Welfare System


This issue brief discusses the steps that may be necessary to create a child welfare system that is more sensitive and responsive to trauma. Every child welfare system is different, and each State or county child welfare system will need to conduct its own systematic process of assessment and planning, in collaboration with key partners, to determine the best approach. After providing a brief overview of trauma and its effects, this issue brief discusses some of the primary areas of consideration in that process, including workforce development, screening and assessment, data systems, evidence-based and evidence-informed treatments, and funding.
