THE PATH to Trauma Therapy: A Guide for Getting Traumatized Children the Help They Need

Most children in 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.
