Trauma Assessments

Samaritas Behavioral Health Services Program has collaborated with WMU - Children's Trauma Assessment Team to provide Trauma Assessments and Attachment Assessments to children. Samaritas holds firm to the WMU - CTAC's model in providing quality, evidenced-based neurodevelopmental assessments.

Exposure to potentially traumatic events can affect a child's functioning with the cognitive, affective, behavioral and physiological domains. Early detection of child trauma can minimize psychological and physiological risk of children. The goal of the Trauma Assessment is to assess the impact of children following exposure to traumatic events and make recommendations for appropriate individual and family therapy services to alleviate the impacts of trauma on the child's life.

Referrals for Trauma Assessments are completed by your Child Welfare Worker. The directions on how to complete the referral are provided by the DHHS. When making a Trauma Assessment Referral, you must use the Michigan DHHS -5594 referral form.
