Trauma-informed Care: It Takes More Than a Clipboard and a Questionnaire

Jim Hickman ·
California is about to launch an ambitious campaign to train tens of thousands of Medi-Cal providers to screen children and adults up to age 65 for trauma, starting on January 1, 2020.

Research has shown that individuals who experienced a high number of traumatic childhood events are likely to die...

Childhood Trauma is Tied to Health Risks, but Michigan Doctors Don't Ask [bridgemi.com]

I have the highest respect for Dr. Harris and her leadership within our trauma-informed movement. As the original "ACEs 10" has now awaken us to widen our scope to include those systemic injustices, race, poverty, LGBTQ+, indigenous, etc.; would any of these be included in these screeners?

This was excellent! I always love to hear Wendy share her perspective. We're using the Pair of ACES Tree this week in a large virtual convening in Oklahoma that's focused on the intersection of child welfare and early childhood. It's a featured part of the meeting, as we are trying to engendered a new mental model with regard to what drives young children and their families into the child welfare system.
