What is Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is a strengths-based approach that acknowledges the prevalence of trauma in our lives and promotes healing and recovery. TIC recognizes that everyone has a unique story and responds to trauma in their own way. The goal of TIC is to create an environment where survivors feel safe, supported, and empowered to heal.

How TIC Differs from Traditional Approaches

Traditional approaches to care often rely on a one-size-fits-all approach that does not consider the individual experiences of survivors. This can inadvertently re-traumatize survivors by triggering past memories and emotions. TIC, on the other hand, takes a strengths-based approach that focuses on the individual. TIC also recognizes that trauma does not only happen in the moment; it can have lasting effects that ripple out into every area of a person's life.

The Benefits of TIC

There are many benefits to using a trauma-informed approach. When survivors feel safe and supported, they are more likely to engage in their own healing process. TIC also empowers survivors to take control of their own narrative and create a story of hope and resilience. In addition, TIC can help build trusting relationships between survivors and service providers. These relationships are essential for healing to take place.

If you are a survivor of trauma, know that you are not alone. There is help available, and there is hope for healing. Trauma-Informed Care is one approach that can provide support and promote healing on your journey toward recovery.
