CANS Family Guide


The CANS Family Guide is a tool for engaging youth and families during a behavioral health assessment. Developed by CBHI with input from Parent/Professional Advocacy League (PPAL) and the MCEs, this simple, two page guide explains what the CANS is and why it is used. You can give it to families to read on their own or use it to guide a conversation during the assessment period.

The Center for Child Trauma Assessment and Service Planning, a National Child Traumatic Stress Network Center at Northwestern University, has been focusing on application of the CANS in relation to trauma-informed treatment and services over the past 3 years and has recently been refunded for an additional 4 years. On the CANS Collaborative Call, the Center
Director (Cassie Kisiel) and Clinical Director (Tracy Fehrenbach) will:

1) discuss their project goals and how they interface with the
work of the CANS Collaborative,
2) overview resources developed related to the CANS and
trauma-informed treatment planning and family engagement, and
3) introduce a survey that was developed to assess resource
needs related to the application of the CANS in trauma-informed
practice as well as interest in future collaborations in this area.
