Trauma Informed Practices


What is trauma informed care?

Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

How to become trauma informed:

  • A trauma-informed agency incorporates knowledge and education about the impact of trauma into its culture, is mindful of trauma histories and effects of trauma, and does more than just offer services or therapy that treats trauma
  • Is welcoming and engaging and enables healing, recovery, and empowerment
  • Everyone is involved – leadership, clinicians, maintenance, receptionists, community, transportation
