The study aims to develop and improve the Trauma Sensitive Care Questionnaire in Child Protection Commissions (CPCJ). The survey was created to evaluate the CPCJ in Trauma-Sensitive Care in development with an organization that understands the impact of trauma on the developmental trajectories of children and youth as well as its implications for the well-being of professionals and the organization. To this end, the instrument explores several dimensions considered critical, promotes reflections and potential changes, contributing to the development of an integrated approach to the rights of children and youth. For its refinement, the QACST-SPIJ (CPCJ) was piloted by a panel of experts in the field, through interviews, who actively contributed to the improvement of the instrument through various suggestions and comments. The final version reached demonstrates that the instrument is relevant for the characterization and evaluation of practices within the scope of the CPCJ and fulfils a gap in the national panorama in this domain.
