THE WFD Committee was established in 2015
GOAL: Develop a workforce that includes all individuals working with children and families that is trauma-informed
The WFD Committee identified seven core content areas to be included in workforce development efforts to inform, educate, and train others in the complex field of childhood trauma, to provide a common framework for practitioners working with children and families:
- Introduction to Trauma
- Nature of Trauma
- Impact of Trauma on the Child
- Prevention, Resiliency & Protective Factors
- Interactions and Interventions with Survivors of Trauma
- Self-Care and Vicarious Trauma.

ICTC Cohort Survey
WFD Committee completed an ICTC cohort survey in 2015 and 2017, and initial analysis survey results compiled in 2018. The committee is in process of a deeper analysis of the survey results and possible white paper to broadly disseminate the information.
