Advancing Trauma-Informed Practices: Bringing trauma-informed, resilience-focused care to children, adolescents, families, schools and communities
This paper from The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC) aims to: 1) define the primary experience of trauma; 2) view trauma as a series of experiences resulting in survival driven behaviors, thoughts, emotions, sensations and needs unique to traumatized children; and 3) explain the importance of a trauma-informed context in understanding children’s experiences to guide the evaluation, identification, and initiation of appropriate interventions. By William Steele and Caelan Kuban. (2011)
