PSY 420 Introduction to Trauma-Informed Approaches

Trauma is prevalent, pervasive, and pernicious in our contemporary society. The consequences and enduring repercussions of trauma, whether arising from a single incident, multiple occurrences, or prolonged repetitive events, vary for each individual. To effectively alleviate the effects of trauma on individual, community, and systemic well-being, it is essential to incorporate the fundamental principles of trauma-informed care into behaviors, attitudes, practices, and policies. Embracing the components of a trauma-informed approach, which prioritizes strengths, empowers individuals, and aims to enhance resilience while mitigating risk factors, is paramount.
