Children and Youth Planning Board’s Childhood Trauma Task Force Releases Final Report
Download the newly produced report by Children and Youth Planning Board’s Childhood Trauma Task Force, Called to Care: Promoting Compassionate Healing for Our Children. This report was prepared per a Resolution of the New Orleans City Council (No. R-18-344), and adopted on August 9, 2018. That resolution called for the creation of a one-year task force to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce the occurrence and impact of trauma on children and families within the City of New Orleans. This plan is to include strategies for the prevention of trauma, proper assessment of childhood trauma, and effective intervention to help children and families heal.
The Louisiana Public Health Institute’s director of Family Health, Kristie Bardell, and several of our partners served as task force members.
