Culture and Trauma

A resource from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network

The National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCTSN) views enhancing cultural competence as essential to furthering our mission of increasing access to and improving the standard of care for traumatized children, families, and communities across the nation. Our perspective is that cultural awareness, sensitivity, and understanding need to be infused throughout the operations of every level of an organization to be most effective.
