Many children entering the child welfare system have experienced trauma. Some children have protective factors that buffer the effects of trauma. However, many are exposed to such severe or prolonged trauma that they have short and long-term serious physical and mental health consequences that need to be addressed. Identifying trauma and appropriately responding is critical to ensure the child's well-being; therefore, all children who have been maltreated should be screened for trauma. Screening for trauma will help identify children who require an immediate stabilization (e.g., suicidal), and to identify children for whom a complete trauma assessment by a qualified provider is needed. The NRPVYC created The Path to Trauma Therapy brochure, which assists professionals in the steps from trauma screening to trauma treatment. The NRPVYC also provides case consultation to professionals completing trauma screens and works with judges in the use of trauma screening in their courtrooms.
