We know that too many children experience traumatic stress alone and without receiving appropriate support or services. The comprehensive Trauma ScreenTIME course provides training in trauma screening for practically anybody who works with children – whether in schools, medical settings, behavioral health, or the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. The course offers best practices in trauma screening, from how to develop an effective screening plan in your organization to administering screening measures with a child or caregiver. The ScreenTIME course will help administrators, front-line staff, and anybody who works in child-serving settings to develop an effective trauma screening program so that children suffering from traumatic stress and their families can be connected with supports and services to help them thrive.

ScreenTIME is a sorely needed course that allows the user to effectively introduce a variety of tools to approach and screen youth for trauma. As trauma is not monolithic neither should be the approach/response or screening of it. ScreenTIME helps family run advocacy organizations like FAVOR Inc. and others working with youth to screen for and identify trauma and begin the process of referral, treatment and recovery.
