CONSULTATION

Creating a trauma-informed culture is vital to first-responder agencies, health care settings, educational/learning communities, as well as juvenile justice, prison, and child welfare systems. Each of these organizations frequently encounter children, families, and adults who have experienced significant psychological trauma and are at increased risk for further victimization and retraumatization. Trauma-informed organizations are agencies and programs that are aware of the impact of trauma, recognize the signs and symptoms of traumatic stress, and are able to respond to and effectively treat the effects of trauma. However, due to limited resources, traumatic stress often goes unaddressed and is placed secondary to immediate or urgent needs (e.g., shelter and food in homeless services settings, medical care for those in health care settings).
