Synopsis: The proportion of children and youth who experience trauma is widespread and demands a systematic response. Studies show that up to 50% of children and youth in child welfare, 60-90% of youth in juvenile justice, and 83-91% of urban youth experience trauma. Experts attribute high rates of suicide, violence and substance abuse among Native Alaskan/American Indian youth to historical trauma. Presenters report on case studies of communities implementing trauma informed systems of care using an indigenous approach, a statewide approach and a school-based integrated model. Two state-agency based infrastructural models (Illinois and Oklahoma) are also profiled.
