The NYS Department of Health has engaged the McSilver Institute to provide training and technical assistance around the implementation of Complex Trauma within Children’s Health Homes. For more information on this initiative and additional resources go toctacny.org/complextrauma
The training aimed to:
-Create a shared understanding of the approved definition of Complex Trauma for NYS Health Home Serving Children
-Provide an overview of the complex trauma workflow with an emphasis on the merits of conducting the Complex Trauma Exposure Screen (CTES)
-Discuss the steps needed to complete the screen, who completes the screen and tips for completing the screen in a trauma informed way.
Individuals at your agency or satellites that may be in a position to conduct the screen or have the knowledge relevant to completing the screen. Additionally, Health Homes and Care Management Agency Staff, and Licensed Professionals who will undertake the next steps following the screen could benefit from this training.
