SAMHSA's Trauma Informed Approach

Until recently, trauma survivors were largely unrecognized by the formal treatment system. The costs of trauma and its aftermath to victim and society were not well documented. Inadvertently, treatment systems may have frequently re-traumatized individuals and failed to understand the impact of traumatic experiences on general and mental health. Today, the causes of trauma-sexual abuse, violence in families and neighborhoods are matters of public concern. A movement for trauma-informed care has emerged to ensure that trauma is recognized and treated and that survivors are not re-victimized when they seek care. Complementing these changes are programs to promote healthy development of children and healthy behaviors in families, schools and communities that reduce the likelihood of trauma.
