Description

Traumatic stress from such events as child abuse, homelessness, or interpersonal violence can have life-long damaging effects on health, learning, and social-development if it goes unaddressed. Advances in awareness and knowledge of the prevalence and impact of traumatic stress have led to a call to action by federal agencies, researchers and service providers to implement “trauma-informed care” across service systems. The growing consensus is that this approach can benefit children and youth, families and individuals, and civilians and veterans.
