First ever study of trauma-informed foster care shows stunning results

Children and adolescents who enter the foster care system have typically been previously exposed to more adverse experiences than children in the general population. “This study validates what we have long believed, which is that, with the right interventions applied at the right time, children with significant challenges can and do get better. KVC’s staff have clearly demonstrated that implementing and sustaining trauma-informed and focused care changes lives,” said Kelly McCauley, Associate Director for the KVC Institute for Health Systems Innovation and project lead for TST implementation and evaluation.
