Implementing Trauma-Informed Practices in Pediatric Integrated Primary Care

 

A bright and airy hospital hallway.

 


 

 

Traumatic events are unfortunately common in youth (McLaughlin et al., 2013; SAMHSA, 2018) and children with an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD) are four times more likely to be the victim of family violence and are at greater risk for sexual assault than their peers (Cook & Hole, 2021). This webinar series provides information on traumatic life experiences and related outcomes, how traumatic experiences can affect children with IDD, and trauma-informed care principles relevant to primary care. This series also discusses strategies for screening for trauma in primary care, with children with IDD, and strategies for reporting and documenting alleged trauma disclosures.
