Trauma Informed Services

This training video is a lesson in understanding trauma and its impact. Trauma is extreme stress that overwhelms a person’s ability to cope. Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) recognizes the effects of trauma and is sensitive to the needs of people who have experienced trauma. It can occur through violence, maltreatment, neglect or depravation, exploitation, war, disaster and/or abrupt and negative life changes. Recognizing trauma and dealing with it properly improves your capacity to deliver results-based, high-quality services.
