Trauma-Informed Care

A broadly defined and multidisciplinary term that refers to services that have been designed or modified to incorporate: a recognition of the pervasiveness of traumatic experiences in society; an awareness of specific risk factors; a basic understanding of trauma’s wide-ranging effects; attention to signs of trauma exposure or impact; a sensitivity to not inadvertently retraumatize impacted individuals; and an emphasis on client safety, choice, collaboration and empowerment. Applicable to any and all service providers, settings and systems: from therapists to teachers, from dentist offices to detention centers, from law enforcement to religious institutions.
