Top 10 List: WEBSITES

Just like the previous list, I have compiled a list of my top ten websites that would be beneficial to know! I rated then out of 5 stars, but essentially since they are my top 10 they are all perfectly sound! The list is in no particular order and I have included a short bio on each item.

  1. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ★★★★★
    • Okay first of all, THIS IS A MUST. Trauma can have huge impacts on children and adolescents. SUICIDE RISK should always be evaluated, especially on teenagers who’s impulse control is not at its finest. This website has 5 stars because it is extremely informative and even provides chats. They have support sections, personal stories, information on signs and warning etc. Extremely beneficial for ANYONE to know about this website.
  2. Fight Child Abuse ★★★★★
    • Five stars all the way, this sight gives information on child abuse and how to prevent it. It is interactive for children, via video’s and activities called “protect yourself rules” for ALL AGE TYPES.
  3. Therapist Aid ★★★★★
    • This website is great for counselors. It provides, worksheets, interactive tools, guides, videos, and articles. This website is easily navigated by filtering the demographic and topics. Definitely a huge tool to have when looking for actives for children within trauma, like a feelings worksheet.
  4. Child Trauma Academy ★★★★★
    • This is a website on an non-profit organization that hopes to provide information on how the human brain and child development is important. This website provides resources on interventions, abuse & neglect, Brain development & neuroscience, child and early development, trauma and PTSD, violence and so on. Five stars as well because it has a lot of information and nicely sub categorized.
  5. National Child Traumatic Stress Network ★★★★★
    • This website is extremely informative website. It provides evidence-based fact sheets, information on understanding traumatic stress, and even on how natural disasters and terrorism is traumatic for children. It has subsections for caregivers, therapists, military, media, educations and so on. Five stars for being so in depth!
  6. Urban Child Institute ★★★★
    • Urban Child Institute is a child advocacy program in the mid-southern area. BUT this website provides a lot of resources on children and how they develop in the early years. They have videos, presentations, info graphics, documents, and the list goes on! I have four stars because it is not trauma focused, BUT this should not be excluded because in order to understand trauma individuals need to understand how a child develops in a healthy manner.
  7. Ted Talks ★★★★
    • If you are like me, then you love to watch educational video and Ted Talks just does that! They provide speakers on various topics and fields. I gave four stars because it was not a specific trauma website BUT this website just has about everything in terms of topics. It is great to just know about it and have it as a reference!!!
  8. Look Through Their Eyes ★★★★★
    • this is another great website on childhood trauma that is based in Illinois. Five stars because they have videos, information on what trauma is, easy to navigate and is visually appealing.
  9. Kid Power ★★★★★
    • This is a website on information and educational activities for child, adolescent, school and even community safety skills. They have articles, handouts, posters, and so on. I decided to include this because this is a great tool for educating children on preventive measures against abuse and even bullying in school. Five stars for a vast array of handouts, information, and activities. Child safety is always important!
  10. NSOPW ★★★★★
    • So this website is based from the U.S. Department of Justice. It houses a Registry site for sex offenders, provides information on education and prevention on sexual abuse, fact sheets, warning signs and symptoms, etc. Its a great resource! I gave five stars because it is run by the department of justice and is informative.
