trauma informed care

WHAT IS TRAUMA INFORMED CARE?
As defined by Midwest Trauma Services Network
"Trauma informed care is the compilation of the collective science in response to observed consequences of trauma exposure over the last 100 years"
Being Trauma Informed means taking the knowledge of how trauma impacts and applying it to our interactions with those we come into relationship with whether at work with clients, co-workers, organizations, community or home with our families.
