Current Edition of insights

insights, Volume XVII - Understanding Trauma to Promote Healing in Child Welfare, Part 1 

This issue of insights is the first of a two-part edition to share definitions, data, and perspectives to further the understanding of the role of trauma at the individual, family, community and system level and perhaps more importantly, how to promote resilience and healing to improve outcomes for children and families. The issue includes insights and recommendations gleaned from interviews with state and county policymakers, pediatricians, judges, social workers, mental health clinicians, and social justice leaders. Stay tuned for our part two issue where we follow up on the recommendations and provide an overview of promising practices.
