Trauma-Informed Care

Creating Trauma-Informed Systems

A trauma-informed child and family service system is one in which all parties involved recognize and respond to the impact of traumatic stress.

Culture and Trauma

Trauma intersects in many different ways with culture, history, race, gender, location, and language.

Families and Trauma

All families experience trauma differently. Some factors such as a child’s age or the family’s culture or ethnicity may influence how the family copes and recovers from a traumatic event.

Secondary Traumatic Stress

Secondary traumatic stress is the emotional duress that results when an individual hears about the firsthand trauma experiences of another.
