A Trauma-Informed Guide


Understanding trauma results in a paradigm shift that is often expressed as "Once you see trauma, you can't un-see it." The effects of trauma permeate our society and world. They are often misjudged by those who have not yet taken the "deep dive" into becoming trauma informed.


Trauma-informed humans see the world differently. It makes a difference. Trauma-informed information is on every page of this website, but this guide is a good way to begin becoming trauma informed.
