Trauma-Informed Care: An Online Community Resource | Indiana University Rural Conference 2020
From Group IU Center for Rural Engagement on September 29th, 2020
Trauma-informed care has emerged and developed in response to an awareness of the pervasiveness of human adversity and trauma. Guided by five principles, trauma-informed care seeks to promote healing from trauma through safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment. This presentation will provide an overview of trauma-informed care and its utility among several different populations, including children, Veterans, and people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. In addition, it will describe a multidisciplinary team approach to creating an accessible community training to promote workforce development on trauma-informed care.
