Trauma Informed Care
What is Trauma Informed Care?
“Knowledge about the prevalence and impact of trauma has grown to the point that it is now universally understood that almost all of those seeking services in the public health system have trauma histories. Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) provides a new paradigm under which the basic premise for organizing services is transformed from “what is wrong with you?” to “what has happened to you?.” TIC is initiated through an organizational shift from a traditional “top-down” environment to one that is based on collaboration with consumers and survivors. In true partnership, the path to healing is led by the consumer or survivor and supported by the service provider. Within this dynamic learning community where staff and clients learn from one another, consumers and survivors no longer experience a hierarchical approach in service delivery. Those seeking services are empowered to proactively set goals and manage their roads to health and wellbeing. This, indeed, is a revolutionary advance in mental health and human services delivery.” -SAMHSA
