Trauma and Community Resilience Center

The Boston Children’s Hospital Trauma and Community Resilience Center (BCH TCRC) is dedicated to understanding and promoting the healthy adjustment of youth and families who have experienced trauma and adversity. In partnership with communities and service systems, we build prevention and intervention programs, conduct research, and develop resources to assist refugee families and service providers. At the BCH TCRC, we believe that social justice, equity, and human rights are at the core of a healthy society, and actively work to promote these values through our collaborative models of care for children and adolescents.

The BCH TCRC currently focuses on three core areas of programming: 

  1. Refugee Trauma & Resilience
  2. Multidisciplinary Models of Violence Prevention 
  3. Trauma-Informed & Culturally-Responsive Training 

 

The Boston Children’s Hospital Refugee Trauma and Resilience Center is dedicated to understanding and promoting the healthy adjustment of refugee children and adolescents who have resettled in the United States.
