A trauma-informed approach incorporates three key elements:
1) realizing the prevalence of trauma
2) recognizing how trauma affects all individuals
3) responding by putting this knowledge into practice
Everyone is different. Individuals who have experienced severe trauma/abuse and/or who live with chronic pain/illness and disability as a result of those experiences may experience life differently. By offering trauma-informed care, you are creating a more accessible and inclusive environment for others to thrive. You are telling your clients/customers/patients that you see and hear them and that they are welcomed in this world. By creating a safe space, you activitely participate in their healing. Thank you for creating bridges instead of obstacles.
For individuals living with chronic illness, pain and disability, creating a life of high quality is of utmost importance. Creating a professional support network of trauma-informed individuals allows you to be your authentic self in every aspect of life. You are also cared for in a way that is entirely to your benefit: by individuals who respect your journey and who take into consideration your life experiences and how they shape your day to day.
