Emotional Trauma and Recovery:
Emotional trauma occurs when an external threat overwhelms a person’s internal and external positive coping resources (SAMSHA). An estimated 60 percent of adults in the United States experience an adverse life event (trauma) at least once in their lives. When unaddressed, people who experienced trauma can face poor health outcomes, such as mental health problems and addiction, increased risk of health problems and suicide.
Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. Staff will receive education about how trauma affects individuals seeking services, what trauma-informed care is, how to create safe environments for persons served, and ways to avoid re-traumatizing practices.
