Sharing Power: A Tool for Reflection

This resource from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) offers tips for providers on sharing power in trauma-responsive care. This tip sheet encourages providers to broaden their perspective and deepen their insights by “wearing the hats” of others at their agency (i.e., parents, intake workers, administrators). It covers language and tone of agency outreach materials, intake and registration, conducting an initial meeting, giving jargon-free assessment/evaluation feedback, the course of care, obstacles and crises, and ending treatment services.
