In this webinar, the members of the UCSC Benioff Children’s Hospital – Oakland and San Mateo County Health teams participating in the Resilient Beginnings Collaborative share their approaches and journeys to trauma screening and assessment.


Those undergoing organization-wide trauma-informed care training or looking for models for trauma screening implementation.

The Children’s Hospital Oakland kindly shared some tools from their process:

  1. ACES Trauma Screening cover sheet: Attached as the first page of the screening tool to provide context for the screening questions.
  2. ACEsconnection handout: Use a laminated version to briefly contextualize the screening tool before asking parents to fill it out, and then also ask them if they want a paper copy to take home (2 versions, only difference is the pictures on both).
    Handout Version 1
    Handout Version 2
  3. BARC ACEs SDOH Tool (also called the “PEARLS tool”): The actual screening tool used by CHO.
