|Title||A Survey of Knowledge About Trauma-Informed Care and Speech-Language Pathologists|
|Degree||Master of Science|
|Abstract||The purpose of this study is to evaluate the extent to which practicing speech-language pathologists are trauma-informed. It is hypothesized that speech-language pathologists have a limited understanding and knowledge of trauma-informed care and why it is important to implement with children who have experienced trauma. School-based speech-language pathologists (n=116, age 18-64) responded to survey questions from the Attitudes Related to Trauma-Informed Care Scale (ARTIC) Version: ARTIC-45 Education survey. Significant differences were found for attending trauma-informed care trainings (p<.01 and p<.05). Only attending trauma-informed care trainings impact actually having trauma-informed care knowledge. Characteristics such as age, years of experience, foster care experience, and belief of trauma-informed care without training showed no significant differences and therefore do not impact trauma-informed care knowledge. The results of this study support future research on the need to educate SLPs implementing trauma-informed care in their therapy sessions.|
