The Relentless School Nurse: A Trauma-Informed Agenda for the First 100 Days of the Biden-Harris Administration

Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice – CTIPP is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create a healthy, just, resilient, and trauma-informed society where all people have the social, political, cultural, economic, and spiritual opportunities and the supports necessary to thrive.

They have proposed a trauma-informed agenda for the first 100 days of the new administration with the long-term goal of creating a trauma-informed America. Certainly, this is needed now more than ever given the collective trauma we as a nation have been experiencing for months on end.

Large gains can be made with a strategic administrative plan for addressing trauma, stress, and adversity, even as the longer process of aligning legislative action continues.
