National Child Traumatic Stress Network Treatment Services Adaptation Center

The Center for Resilience and Well-Being in Schools (CRWS) is a national resource hub established to facilitate safe, supportive school environments and strong communities.

Just one safe supportive adult can make a massive difference in a youth’s life. CRWS programs and resources support educators, administrators and school staff to be “the ones” who protect, nurture, and teach our youth, and to build their social emotional health and resilience.

School communities are safe, nurturing and engaging environments that inspire passion for lifelong learning, foster social emotional health, and build resilience.


We provide K-12 school communities with evidence based professional development, resources, and consultation that are trauma responsive and cultivate well-being and resilience for all students, families, and educators
