-National Child Traumatic Stress Network
The All In! Partnership Project’s commitment to unconditional education includes advocating for a greater understanding of the role that trauma plays in the lives of our students and families. The All In! clinical team works closely with schools to establish a trauma-informed school culture - one that recognizes the prevalence of trauma in our communities, understands the connection between trauma and a child’s presentation, addresses potential triggers in the environment that can activate a child who has experienced trauma, and responds by acknowledging that the behaviors represent a trauma-based survival strategy. All In! views the collaboration with The Justice Resource Institute as an opportunity to further the mission of educating communities about the impact of trauma on children and implementing best practices regarding care and treatment. We would like to recognize Kate Kenealy and Jessica Welsh, members of our clinical team who are volunteering their time to gather data for the DTD field trial study.
- Who can participate? Any child between the ages of 8-17 and his/her legal guardian.
- The child DOES NOT need to have experienced a traumatic life event.
- The child DOES NOT have to present with symptoms of trauma to participate.
- The child DOES NOT have to be enrolled in a Seneca program. In fact, Seneca employees and their children are also invited to participate!
- What is required? A 2-3 hour interview with both child and caregiver about stressful life events and the child’s responses to stress. Interviews can take place in the home or at a Seneca office in Oakland. If the child is unable to complete the interview, or refuses to participate, that’s ok as long as we are able to complete the caregiver interview.
- What are the benefits of participating? Family will receive a $50 VISA gift card per child & may request assessment results.
If you are working with families that may be interested, or if YOU and your child want to participate, please contact:
