Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Traumatic experiences can include physical or emotional abuse, neglect, witnessing violence, being involved in a natural disaster, or experiencing a life-threatening event. Anyone can experience trauma, and it is not limited to any one group of people. It is important to remember that everyone experiences and responds to trauma in their own unique way.
Trauma-informed care (TIC) is an approach to caring for individuals that recognizes the impact of trauma and strives to foster healing and resilience. TIC takes into account the unique needs of each individual and emphasizes collaboration, safety, trustworthiness, choice, and empowerment. This type of care seeks to address the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of those who have experienced trauma. Providers who take a TIC approach seek to create a safe environment where individuals feel respected and empowered to make their own choices about their care.
