9 Childhood Trauma Tests & Questionnaires

In this article:

Childhood trauma is a difficult topic to navigate. We don’t like to think, or talk, about children being hurt.
But if we’re working with clients who may have been traumatized, we really need to understand it—what it means, how it manifests, and how to identify it.
Accurate childhood trauma tests are an important part of the therapeutic process if we suspect that trauma may have occurred.
In this article, we highlight examples and signs of childhood trauma. We also provide a list of proven childhood trauma tests for clinical practice and research. We end off with a look at post-traumatic growth and positive psychology strategies to work with trauma and foster resilience and positive growth.
