Trauma-Informed Care report from the American Academy of Pediatrics

Trauma- Informed Care is a clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics [Pediatrics August 2021 148(2)]. This clinical report describes the elements of Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) in the direct care of children, adolescents, and families and encompasses the spectrum from prevention to treatment. TIC recognizes that exposure to adversities is common to many, if not most, children and that the developmental, behavioral, and health consequences can be profound and long lasting. Pediatric clinicians with an understanding of the physiology of both resilience and trauma can promote resilience, recognize, and respond to traumas, and promote recovery.
