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.
