Trauma Smart works.

Reduce the negative impact of trauma and violence on our children today for a better tomorrow.

Developed by the experts at Crittenton Children’s Center, Trauma Smart was founded on evidence-based interventions recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network to be effective in helping children and the adults who care for them effectively address the negative impact of violence and trauma.

They are our future. While we can’t protect children from going through a traumatic experience, we can help them cope and recover.

Trauma Smart helps young children, and the adults who care for them, calmly navigate difficult life challenges by combining practical, hands-on tools and effective coping strategies and bringing them into the places where kids learn and play every day.

By incorporating Trauma Smart into your life, you will be laying the groundwork for better emotional resilience and health of our children and inevitably our society.

All Head Start children engaged in the Trauma Smart program benefit from an improved school environment.
