The ScreenTIME courses provide staff in child-serving systems with best practices for trauma screening. Our goal is to help child-serving staff identify and support children suffering from traumatic stress as early as possible and connect those in need with effective services.
Unfortunately, many children are exposed to violence, abuse, accidents, and other traumatic events. Some of these children will struggle with the effects of trauma on their health and well-being and may develop difficulties in school, at home, or with their relationships. Child-serving professionals and organizations such as those in healthcare settings, schools, and child welfare, can provide more effective service if they are aware of the trauma experienced by the children they serve. Too many children suffer alone with the stress caused by experiencing trauma.
Trauma screening is a crucial first step towards connecting children and families who have experienced trauma with support and appropriate services. Screening can also facilitate engagement with children and families to discuss trauma in a supportive and helpful way.
