July/August 2011Vol. 12, No. 6Trauma-Informed Care Tip Sheets

Children exposed to violence are impacted in myriad ways that can be difficult to detect. Safe Start Center has developed and made available eight tip sheets aimed at those who care for and work with children who have been exposed to violence. Each tip sheet provides users with a list of age-specific warning signs, how to help, and advice on mandated reporting. Such a diverse topic needs multipronged approaches and resources, and Safe Start's tip sheets cover a range of trauma exposure scenarios and situations. Tip sheets include:

  • Tips for child welfare staff
  • Tips for engaging men and fathers
  • Tips for teachers
  • Tips for agencies working with immigrant families

Safe Start's trauma-informed care tips sheets are available on the Safe Start website:
