Trauma-Informed Care is about recognizing the prevalence and impact of trauma in our communities and then using that knowledge to influence how we interact with people to create emotionally and physically safe environments. A key component of being trauma-informed is reflecting on our own stress response, perspectives, assumptions, and building an understanding of how this might impact our own relationships. How might a trauma-informed lens transform your interactions with clients, coworkers, neighbours, and family?
