Trauma Readiness Assessment Report NEW!
DCF, working in partnership with Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care (UBHC), conducted a self-assessment in 2014 of the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P).  This self-assessment sought to help CP&P become a more trauma-informed system of care. Information from the qualitative and quantitative assessment measures were analyzed and compiled to create a Trauma Readiness Assessment Report. This report  includes the identified strengths and areas of need, recommendations and considerations for next steps.
