The Importance of Becoming Trauma-Informed

  1. The therapist must realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand potential roads to recovery.
  2. The therapist recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in their clients and their families, plus staff and other people engaged in the mental health system.
  3. The therapist responds to traumatized individuals by fully integrating knowledge about trauma policies, procedures, and practices.
  4. The therapist will attempt to resist re-traumatizing their client.
