This week, our entire staff participated in a training for our agency to become Trauma Informed. Being trauma informed means that we understand that many of our clients have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives. People who have experienced trauma deal with their everyday experiences in a different way than those who have not; they need to know that they are cared for and supported. It is our goal as a trauma informed agency to be able to help people without re-traumatizing them. You can find out more about trauma informed care here.
