Portfolio of Trauma-Informed Tools for 2Gen Approaches

Trauma-informed care is often referred to as medical care in which all parties involved assess, recognize, and respond to the effects of traumatic stress on children, caregivers, and providers (National Child Traumatic Stress Network). This portfolio features a collection of resources and tools gathered from the Ascend Network over 2022-2023, with a specific focus on practitioners and Ascend Fellows who have developed and/or refined tools and resources that support families through 2Gen approaches with a trauma-informed lens. We have prioritized resources that utilize a racial equity and gender lens in their application, as well as incorporated family voice.
