Trauma-informed care (TIC) is defined by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network as medical care in which all parties involved assess, recognize, and respond to the effects of traumatic stress on children, caregivers, and health care providers. In the clinical setting, TIC includes the prevention, identification, and assessment of trauma; response to trauma; and recovery from trauma as a focus of all services. The information and resources on this American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) webpage include training and education opportunities, professional tools, resources for families, podcasts, blogs, and more. The AAP also provides recommendations and guidelines to support pediatricians, other pediatric health care providers, and health care systems in the implementation of TIC.
