Becoming trauma-informed and responsive will require time, effort, support and financial resources. Some organizations have already adopted many of the practices discussed on this website, while for others, these ideas may be newer and require more effort to implement. Wherever you are at, the Center on Child Wellbeing and Trauma is here to help.
This page contains a variety of resources individuals and organizations can use on your journey toward becoming more trauma-informed and responsive. It includes:
- Audience-Specific Resources: A curated list of helpful documents developed by other organizations, including guides, toolkits, one-pagers, webinars, and actions plans that focus on the particular needs of diverse groups of children.
- Professional Area-Specific Resources: A curated list of helpful documents developed by other organizations, including guides, toolkits, one-pagers, webinars, and actions plans that focus on particular professional sectors, such as child welfare, education, primary care and the justice system.
- Toolkits: We will be developing a variety of targeted tool kits designed to help professionals implement the practices recommended by this website. Our first toolkit was designed for early education staff.
- Racial Trauma and Equity Training: Understanding the impact of racial trauma and promoting equity are foundational to being trauma-informed and responsive. We have developed a virtual training series on these important topics to help individuals seeking to learn more.
- Parents & Caregivers: This website is designed to support organizations that work with children. But there are many good resources to support parents and caregivers. If you notice that your child or someone else you love is having a hard time, you are not alone – here are some resources to help.
