Trauma Resources

Administration for Children & Families

Resource Guide to Trauma-Informed Human Services | The Administration for Children and Families (

Experiencing deeply disturbing events or situations (i.e., trauma) can affect the way a person learns, plans, and interacts with others. This can have profound implications for how human services agencies interact with their clients. Many individuals experience few problems after enduring a traumatic event. Some will have short term symptoms lasting a few days or weeks but will recover quickly. A few will suffer longer term changes in mood, behavior, and how they interact with others and the world around them.

This guide provides human services leaders at the local, State, Tribal, and Territorial levels with information and resources on recent advances in our understanding of trauma, toxic stress, and executive functioning. It especially highlights what these advances mean for program design and service delivery. The guide helps professionals learn about trauma-informed care and helps those currently engaged in trauma-informed work to improve their practice.

These resources provide an overview of key concepts related to trauma and a guide to resources from a range of HHS federal agencies and respected sources outside government. These materials are both a “front door” to the topic of trauma and a “road map” to relevant resources.

PACEs Connection supports hundreds of local ACEs initiatives in neighborhoods, cities, counties, states and nations. We provide initiatives with a free community site on PACEs Connection, guidelines on how to launch and grow local PACEs initiatives, and tools to automatically track their growth. For established initiatives, we offer access to more powerful and advanced tools, guidelines and services in the PACEs Connection Cooperative of Communities to help initiatives easily measure their progress and track outcomes. We also have interest-based communities, such as PACEs in Education and Parenting with PACEs. Our goal is to help initiatives share policies and practices to leverage their community’s ideas, successes and challenges to solve their most intractable problems using PACEs science.
