The Boston Children’s Hospital Trauma and Community Resilience Center (TCRC) is dedicated to understanding and promoting the healthy adjustment of youth and families who have experienced trauma and adversity. In partnership with communities and service systems, we build prevention and intervention programs, conduct research, and develop resources to assist youth, families, and service providers. At the TCRC, we believe that social justice, equity, and human rights are at the core of a healthy society, and we actively work to promote these values through our collaborative models of care for children and adolescents.
The TCRC currently focuses on three core areas of programming:
Refugee and Immigrant Core Stressors Toolkit
This toolkit will provide you with information about four core stressors that refugees and immigrants may face and sample questions to guide your assessment. These sample questions are not intended as a substitute for clinical judgment. If this is your first time using the toolkit, take your time, explore the sections, and then try the assessment component.
