Child Trauma in State Spotlight

Child Trauma in State Spotlight

Oklahoma is one of three sites participating in the California-based Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Project.

Each site is testing new ways to identify effective trauma treatments and develop trauma service delivery models within the child welfare system.

The Chadwick team recently reported on their assessment of Oklahoma’s trauma treatment and service delivery.  Their report is here.

The team’s powerpoint presentation, “Trauma-informed Child Welfare in Oklahoma,” summarizing the assessment and responseis here.

Trauma-Informed Systems Experts to Spotlight State’s Plan

Charles Wilson

Oklahoma is one of three laboratory sites participating in the California-based Chadwick Trauma-Informed Systems Project.  Each site is developing and testing new ways to organize child welfare services into a wider trauma-informed service delivery environment.

The goal of the state’s assessment is to identify effective treatments and develop delivery models for victims of child abuse and neglect.

Lessons learned in Oklahoma are already spreading across the nation.

Alison Hendricks

Chadwick representatives involved in Oklahoma’s trauma assessment, Charles Wilson, MSSW, and Alison Hendricks, LCSW, will discuss findings and the state plan in Tulsa Oct. 20 and Oklahoma City Oct. 21.

Priorities for Change

In the spring of 2011, three Summits were held to generate ideas to improve the child protection system in Oklahoma.

More than 100 professionals and leaders in the fields of child abuse and neglect prevention, treatment, and protection of children and youth in state custody came together in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Claremore/Rogers County. This document is the result of their work.

Their mission: Identify critical Priorities for Change. There are 20.
