This Polyvictimization and Trauma Identification Checklist and Resource Guide (Checklist) was developed by the Safe Start Center, the American Bar Association (ABA) Center on Children and the Law, and Child & Family Policy Associates to help lawyers and other legal advocates for children recognize the prevalence and impact of polyvictimization and perform more trauma-informed legal and judicial system advocacy. The Checklist, along with the Flowchart on Trauma-Informed Actions, can be used by children's attorneys, juvenile defenders, Court Appointed Special Advocates, and other advocates in both the dependency (child welfare) and delinquency (juvenile justice) systems.
