The purpose of The T.O.P. (Trauma Outcome Process) Workbook for Sexual Health is to support young people in making clear decisions that promote health and well-being, particularly sexual health.
The T.O.P. Workbook provides a structured approach for exploring the impact of previous trauma on current behavior. The Trauma Outcome Process is designed to simply examine how painful life experiences impact thoughts, feelings, physiological reactions, and behavior. The workbook has been peer reviewed by licensed mental health clinicians working in child welfare and community health. It was piloted with youth in independent living programs and those aging out of foster care.
The workbook represents an integration of clinical material relating to trauma and sexual decision-making from a variety of sources and professional disciplines into a format that any young person will understand.
