These two Cards were mentioned by Dr. Stirling in the AAP Trauma Experienced by Kids in Foster Care Video.  I really think when dealing with kids in Foster Care or any child who has been traumatized, it is important to understand that the behavioral reactions seen are often normal adaptive reactions considering what the child experienced.  The video is really great at explaining this and helping us understand but also understand how to speak to parents so that they can understand the behaviors are normal adaptive mechanisms and that it takes time, safety, love and consistency to change and heal them.

This issue brief discusses the steps that may be necessary to create a child welfare system that is more sensitive and responsive to trauma. Every child welfare system is different, and each State or county child welfare system will need to conduct its own systematic process of assessment and planning, in collaboration with key partners, to determine the best approach. After providing a brief overview of trauma and its effects, this issue brief discusses some of the primary areas of consideration in that process, including workforce development, screening and assessment, data systems, evidence-based and evidence-informed treatments, and funding.
