The Report from the National Task force on Children Exposed to Violence is an outline on recommendations to address the devastating effects of trauma on children at the state, national, and even local level. It outlines the importance of educating professionals working with children, ensuring the hospital system is trauma informed, and encouraging young community leaders who have experienced trauma themselves to help guide the initiative.
