Pediatric Medical Traumatic Stress: A Comprehensive Guide

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network

January 1, 2016

This toolkit was produced by the Medical Traumatic Stress Working Group of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) to:

-Raise awareness among health care providers about traumatic stress associated with pediatric medical events and medical treatment, as it may affect children and families.

-Promote “trauma-informed practice” of pediatric health care in hospital settings across the continuum of care and in a variety of settings within the hospital- e.g., from emergency care, to specialized inpatient units, to the ICU.
