Video Case Vignette Series

The PATTeR video case vignette series below was developed to demonstrate an effective workflow for screening, referral, and follow-up for trauma. The series is broken into three videos: Attachment, resilience, and trauma; shared power and difficult conversations; and talking to teens about trauma.  Each full video is further broken down in shorter clips for teaching points.

Attachment, Resilience and Trauma

In this video you will see how the pediatrician engages with his 9-year-old patient, Jake, and his mom, and demonstrates predictable compassionate availability, allowing the family to feel safe to express their distress and helping them regulate that distress. The pediatrician models surveillance, screening, and resilience by asking open ended questions and starting from a resiliency approach.
