This report compiled by Casey Family Programs (July 2013) summarizes many of the child welfare activities occurring across the nation.   The three sections include: (1) Context and definition; (2) Prerequisites for successful implementation of trauma-informed care; and (3) Barriers to successful implementation.

States included in the matrix do not necessarily represent the “best” trauma-informed child welfare operations, but instead these states have made progress towards operationalizing trauma-informed care and can serve as relevant examples for others interested in trauma informed care development.
