Move toward becoming trauma-informed.

Is your organization or school providing trauma-informed services? The human and social services sectors used to consider trauma common to a relatively limited population—studies now show that a much higher percentage of the general population of the US has experienced trauma sufficient to negatively impact health and well-being across the lifespan. The established prevalence of trauma requires human service professionals to “…presume the clients we serve have a history of traumatic stress and exercise “universal precautions” by creating systems of care that are trauma-informed” (Hodas, 2005). Without strong trauma-informed policies, procedures, environments, and practice in place, well-meaning organizations run the risk of inadvertently re-traumatizing the children, youth, individuals, and families with whom they work. The Strategies Center offers The Trauma-Informed Series of services to ensure that your organization has a thorough understanding of the deep neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma.
