What is “Trauma-Informed” ?  Working Definition:

  .

A program, organization, or system that is “trauma-informed”

 realizes the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for recovery;

recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system; and

responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices, and seeks to actively

resists re-traumatization

(SAMHSA’s Concept of  Trauma-Informed )

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation.

“A number of studies have shown that exposure to highly stressful early environments is associated with deficits in the development of children’s working memory, attention, and inhibitory control skills.  Damaging fear and toxic stress are likely mechanisms that explain these effects, in part, because they affect the chemistry of brain circuits involved in the development of these capacities, and they impair the specific neuronal architecture that is engaged when we try to keep information in working memory, inhibit a habitual action, or address problems in a flexible manner.”

             “Nowhere to Hide” series links

Each separate, individual article in the series focuses on a single component of the workings of developmental trauma, via real life examples in short “60 second” soundbites, akin to “Public Service Announcements” (PSAs).  They are designed for sharing in social media networks to grow public awareness.

Trigger warning: 

the children’s experiences in the vignettes are unvarnished.  Their traumatic responses may trigger painful memories.

  1. Thanks for providing these resources. Trauma affects so many children in my 1st grade. It manifests on a daily basis. It is exhausting and exasperating to try to teach while you are also managing outbursts and out-of-control behaviors.

    1. Thanks for sharing Mary. It is all even harder when we don’t see what is “under the skin”. I was frustrated for many years. I am shocked that this sort of learning is not required in college (or even high school) degrees. That’s my focus: awareness, awareness, awareness.
