Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Adolescents with mental-health trauma (MHT) history face many challenges, and increasing OT providers’ knowledge and confidence in MHT treatment may improve both advocacy for OT role in MHT and program efficacy. The current study examined feasibility and effectiveness of using a brief informational infographic to increase the confidence, knowledge, and willingness of OT providers in working with adolescents with MHT history.
