Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) 

Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) is a model of care for traumatized children that addresses both the individual child’s emotional needs as well as the social environment in which he or she lives. TST is about breaking down barriers between service systems, understanding a child’s symptoms in the context of his or her world, and building on a family’s strengths and dreams. TST is about leaving a better system.
