Trauma-Informed Practices

Preventing re-traumatization

Description

To be effective and efficient, organizations must provide their services in ways that do not inadvertently re-traumatize the people receiving support. Becoming trauma-informed means adapting practices, policies, physical spaces and more to make services more accessible for everyone. This is especially important for people who have lived experiences of trauma, including staff. This class helps learners conceptualize the nature of this problem and offers practices that reduce the risk of re-traumatization.

  • Review impacts of trauma

  • Consider the mechanisms of re-traumatization
