Trauma-Informed

Trauma-Informed Care and Practice

Every organization and team member has a role to play in trauma recovery.

Many of the most pressing problems faced by our community can be traced back to trauma. Poverty, crime, violence, domestic abuse, sexual exploitation, low academic achievement, mental health problems and addiction are rooted in trauma. Solving these problems requires a trauma-informed approach to care and practice.

A trauma-informed approach to care and practice is a way to support people and communities through genuine and compassionate relationships. Unfortunately, as care-providers we risk unintentionally re-traumatizing the people we serve and putting barriers in front of those who are seeking our help and support.

When we become trauma-informed, we recognize the causes and impact of trauma on the people and communities we serve and change our approach to care. We stop asking “what is wrong with you?” and begin asking “what has happened and how can I help?”  This approach is client-centered and works to ensure collaboration, mutuality, and common humanity in everyone we encounter.

You can learn more about trauma-informed care by visiting the Manitoba Trauma Information and Education Centre (MTIEC) website: trauma-informed.ca. MTIEC is a resource hub for service providers and trauma survivors seeking information about trauma informed practice and recovery.
