Published Dec 15, 2015, RFK National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice
How would an agency put in place a way to identify dual status youths’ trauma-related needs? That is the question addressed in this second brief in a series on trauma-related procedures for youth who have been touched by both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. The first brief described the prevalence of trauma-based behavior problems among dual status youth and introduced the need to improve our ability to identify those problems so that we can offer those youth proper interventions. Here we examine how to go about setting up a system for identifying trauma-related problems.
