Abstract

Adolescents often experience trauma that can affect their daily function and lead to health-related issues and outcomes. However, medical providers receive limited training on the impact of trauma on adolescents and how to incorporate that information into treatment practices. This article highlights the impact of crisis and trauma on adolescents. An overview of current assessments and evidence-based interventions to address adolescent patients’ crisis needs is provided. In addition, recommendations for community referrals and partnerships that could improve the health outcomes of these youth are discussed.
