Moorhead, MN — Child Traumatic Stress (CTS) may develop after a child feels intensely threatened by an event he or she is involved in or has witnessed. If left untreated, CTS can have devastating consequences including long-term difficulties with school, relationships and mental health. The goals of my fellowship are to increase awareness regarding CTS among school professionals, to implement a CTS screening and referral procedure within the schools and to develop a network of trauma-informed school professionals who are committed to promoting and sustaining CTS education in the schools.
