Trauma Program for Young Children

The Children’s Center Utah’s Trauma Program for Young Children builds on our foundation as an affiliate of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and provider of evidence-based trauma treatment as we reduce the impact of trauma for children birth to 6 years throughout Utah. This project creates a trauma-informed system of care comprised of child-serving agencies to enhance screening, referrals, and treatment of young children who have experienced trauma.

Through this program, TCCU will increase knowledge related to trauma-informed care practices in cross-sector child-serving agencies throughout Utah by providing training in Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE), an NCTSN-supported training. Providing CARE training to cross-sector early childhood providers will establish a trauma-informed network in communities throughout Utah. CARE training will also facilitate trauma awareness in child-serving professions and increase providers’ skills in supporting families with young children exposed to trauma.
