Public Service AnnouncementsThe Illinois Childhood Trauma Coalition has developed a series of public service announcements (PSAs) to help raise awareness about childhood trauma among parents and caregivers in Illinois. These pieces encourage parents to look through the eyes of their children to see if and how a child is struggling with something traumatic. We invite media and other organizations to broadcast and share sharing these PSAs.

The Judge’s version was developed specifically to help judges ensure that children’s interests and development are fully examined in court, and consists of a series of questions.
