Childhood trauma increases the risk for multiple physical and mental health problems, and is a public health issue that warrants significant attention and resources from our field. Teachers in particular play a critical role in supporting children and helping mitigate the negative effects that trauma can cause. An evaluation of a program that helps schools and teachers create and sustain trauma-informed environments, and implications for teacher training programs across Colorado, will be presented.
