Children’s Trauma Program
Brentwood Hospital understands how trauma significantly impacts a child’s ability to regulate their emotions when having to function in everyday life. Simple, everyday tasks can be triggers that negatively affect their success. The Children’s Trauma program at Brentwood Hospital follows a Trauma Informed Care approach; one that creates a secure environment through predictability and choices, empowers children to focus on their strengths and helps them to reinforce positive relationships with their adult and community supports. Our goal is to increase their ability to regulate their emotions in healthy ways therefore reducing the risk of re-traumatization and increasing their opportunities for a successful childhood.
