Massachusetts's Office of the Child Advocate and Commonwealth Medicine and UMass Chan Medical School announced Oct. 20 a coordinated effort to address childhood trauma.

The Center on Child Wellbeing and Trauma will support organizations and systems in becoming trauma-informed and responsive through training, technical assistance, professional learning opportunities, and other practice advancement support, according to a statement.

“At a time when the experience of childhood trauma is being exacerbated by a global pandemic, I am proud we are taking this important step to ensure all systems that interact with children are trauma-informed and responsive,” said Maria Mossaides, director of the Office of the Child Advocate.
