Tenants and Trauma


Traumatic experiences can change people’s brain and health development, which in turn increases the risk of developing disease states in later life; it also increases the prevalence of mental illness. Since it affects early development, it also affects how a person learns to build and maintain relationships with other people, including landlords and property managers. Professionals who understand how trauma affects people can communicate more effectively by using trauma-informed approaches.
