Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Traumatic events are experienced by over 66% of children under age 16. This poster summarizes a study conducted regarding the presence of education relating to childhood trauma and trauma-informed practices in entry-level OT programs in the Midwest. The findings of this survey detail trends in program delivery, methods, and materials. This information may help programs revise curricula to incorporate this topic to prepare OT practitioners for working with this population.
