Trauma Informed Care

Trauma-informed care is any service that is informed and can recognize the experience, effects and symptoms of trauma. Rather than questioning if the trauma happened, practitioners who practise trauma-informed care assume there is a history of trauma and act accordingly.

The purpose of trauma-informed care is not to treat symptoms or problems associated with sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or other forms of trauma, but rather to provide support services in a way that is accessible and appropriate to those who may have experienced trauma. Trauma-informed care can thus be applied and practised in many different settings, from hospitals to nurses and doctors, in social support institutions to social workers and carers, school teachers, and more.

Mental health practitioners who adopt and practice trauma-informed care (TIC) recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma, and they seek to integrate trauma knowledge into policies, procedures and practices. Trauma-informed care also actively avoids re-traumatisation.
