Description

Let’s face it – understanding and assessing children can be a complex process. It is increasingly clear that reliance on just one type of assessment does not provide the most comprehensive picture that can help facilitate interventions that improve child wellness. This program is designed to facilitate discussion on the importance of assessing trauma in children, with a focus on various types of trauma assessments that can (and should) be weaved into your assessment battery. We will discuss best practices when assessing trauma to get the best information without inadvertently retraumatizing the child. Tips, tools, and resources will be provided that move toward a trauma-informed assessment practices that are easy to use and effective.
