NAASCA - Nov'16 - week 3 - Recent News | NAASCA.org - National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

Most of those children are from Detroit, said Jim Henry, a professor of social work at Western Michigan University and director of the Children's Trauma Assessment Center, which is analyzing the assessments.
Screeners look for symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or complex trauma, the condition that occurs when a child suffers multiple traumatic events, he said. The center's mission, Henry said, is to determine the impact of trauma, stress and abuse on a child's neurodevelopment and how those things affect thinking and learning. We know that there is chronic trauma, or complex trauma, where a child is constantly exposed to traumatic events, in their home or neighborhood, overwhelming events that create powerlessness and an ongoing sense of danger, Henry said. Children's brains literally are changed into a continually triggering fight, flight or freeze mode within the brain. So the stress-response system that we all have is on hyper alert. So kids are continually perceiving danger when danger might not be there because of their chronic exposure, he said. Nearly two-thirds of fourth-graders in the Detroit public school system cannot read James and the Giant Peach, one of the most popular books for their age group.

Kelly Hostetler, executive director of the local United Way, said the idea for the Children's Trauma Assessment Group started with Jim Henry, a former St. Joseph County Department of Human Services worker who has gone on to become a professor at Western Michigan University.
Hostetler said Henry was concerned about the delay between a child's experience with some type of trauma and an assessment by a mental health official to determine the severity of the child's trauma. Henry, who still maintains close contact with officials in St. Joseph County, met in December with Probate Court Judge David Tomlinson and raised the idea of an assessment center in Centreville. After Tomlinson met with Henry, Tomlinson turned to a few county officials and made a commitment to ensure St. Joseph County has an assessment center of its own.
