The intention of Trauma-Informed Care is not to treat symptoms or issues related to sexual, physical or emotional abuse or any other form of trauma, but rather to provide support services in a way that is accessible and appropriate to those who may have experienced trauma.
Trauma 101 training information provided by:
When a trauma-informed approach is not used, the possibility for triggering or exacerbating trauma symptoms and re-traumatizing individuals increases.
Participants learn the meaning of applying "universal precautions", so that systems make a paradigm shift from asking "What is wrong with this person?" to "What has happened to this person?".
Trauma-Informed Care follows five Guiding Principles that serve as a framework for how service providers and systems of care can work to reduce the likelihood of re-traumatization.
The Five Guiding Principles are; safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment. Ensuring that the physical and emotional safety of an individual is addressed is the first important step to providing Trauma-Informed Care.
Next, the individual needs to know that the provider is trustworthy. Trustworthiness can be evident in the establishment and consistency of boundaries and the clarity of what is expected in regards to tasks. Additionally, the more choice an individual has and the more control they have over their service experience through a collaborative effort with service providers, the more likely the individual will participate in services and the more effective the services may be.
Finally, focusing on an individual's strengths and empowering them to build on those strengths while developing stronger coping skills provides a healthy foundation for individuals to fall back on if and when they stop receiving services.
