Event description

Description

Trauma affects individuals, families and communities by disrupting healthy development, adversely affecting relationships, and contributes to mental health issues including substance abuse. An individual’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, and spiritual.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. Almost two-thirds of the study participants reported at least one adverse childhood experience of physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or family dysfunction, and more than one of five reported three or more such experiences. The ACE study revealed the economic costs of untreated trauma-related alcohol and drug abuse alone were estimated at $161 billion in 2000. The human costs are incalculable.

Trauma-informed Care (TIC) means treating a whole person, taking into account past trauma and the effects this has on the coping mechanisms. TIC involves a deeper awareness of the types of trauma and the triggers, understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. TIC also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both youth and adults.

Being Trauma-Informed allows you to change the way you view the most difficult person and be able to find ways to support and nurture them.
