The National Child Traumatic Stress Network is a collaboration of treatment centers from all over the US who have formed a coalition. It is a federally-funded program which helps to improve the quality, effectiveness, and availability of therapeutic services for children and adolescents who have experienced trauma. The Web site offers a resource center with information for parents & caregivers, professionals, and schools. It also offers various articles offering education and best practices related to trauma.
Specifically, see the NCTSN's Measures Review Database for reviews of tools that measure childrens' experiences of trauma, their reactions to it, and other mental health and trauma-related issues. For any tool you select, we encourage you to carefully read about the tool before adapting and using it.
Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.
