Trauma-Informed  Care

Trauma-informed care is not a therapy, intervention, or specific action. It is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledes the role that trauma has played in their lives. Trauma is extreme stress that overwhelms a person's ability to cope. Click on the link below for more information and resources.
