Posted Date: 
May 1, 2012

The Children, Families, Health, and Human Services Interim Committee will continue its study of childhood trauma in May, with a focus on learning more about how child abuse and neglect cases are handled in Montana.

Also at its May 14 meeting, the committee will review:

  • preliminary bill drafts related to its study of childhood hunger; and
  • the activities of more than a dozen advisory councils to the Department of Public Health and Human Services.

For the Senate Joint Resolution 30 study of childhood trauma, the committee will hear more about the duties of caseworkers who handle abuse and neglect cases and about early intervention efforts for children from birth through 3 years of age. The committee wants more information about the barriers to providing a greater array of early intervention services.
