Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. One of the key components of building organizational capacity for trauma-informed care is professional education and development. Staff need education about how trauma affects consumers seeking services, what trauma-informed care is, how to create safe environments for persons served, and ways to avoid re-traumatizing practices. The Trauma 101 & Recovery training is a prerequisite to become a Trauma Trainer (attendance at the Trauma Train-the-Trainer Workshop).
