Trauma Informed

Information and resources that apply trauma informed practices across several different fields.

Healthcare

"Exposure to traumatic events in the lives of women such as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Military Sexual Trauma (MST), rape and other forms of sexual assault, child abuse and neglect, terrorism, natural disasters, and street violence, all predispose affected individuals to poor health outcomes in part through high risk behaviors such as smoking, drinking, illicit drug use, and risky sex, as means to cope with trauma.  As a function of both engaging in high risk behaviors and the trauma itself, survivors are at increased risk of poor physical and mental health outcomes."


Trauma Informed Care in the Perinatal Period

During pregnancy, women with a childhood maltreatment history have a 12-fold increased risk of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although awareness of the need for trauma-informed care and trauma-specific interventions is increasing in the fields of addiction and mental health treatment, there are no front-line programmes for the childbearing year that address maltreatment-related PTSD. The authors address these intergenerational cycles of childhood maltreatment and psychiatric vulnerability; they provide a resource to facilitate incorporating trauma-informed care and trauma-specific interventions into maternity services; and they signal the opportunities for improving outcomes for childbearing women with a history of childhood maltreatment.

Trauma, Resilience, and Health Promotion in LGBT Patients

Toward this end, it addresses trauma in LGBT populations; factors that contribute to resilience both across the lifespan and in specific groups; and strategies for promoting resilience in clinical practice.
