About the course
This training orients the learner to the TBH screen which is used on all children entering care. The portion of the TBH which caregivers complete is reviewed as well as the section to be completed by the child/adolescent. TBH helps to identify trauma experiences and problems that may not have been identified, and how to share information with key players in the child’s life.
1. Enhance the knowledge and skill level of the DCFS staff and key stakeholders to understand the prevalence and impact on youth.
