In the 2022 Children’s Mental Health Report, the Child Mind Institute looks at the effects of psychological trauma on kids and the most promising ways to treat it. The report explores several key questions, including: What are the most common definitions of trauma? How can trauma affect children and teenagers? What is the evidence base for treatments aimed at mitigating the impacts of trauma? And in a special supplement, the report details the results of a national survey of parents’ perspectives on trauma and how it has affected their own children and families.
