An Introduction to Trauma-Informed Care
An Introduction to Trauma-Informed Care

For many years, trauma was believed to be relatively rare in the U.S. In truth, about 61 to 80% of individuals in the general population experience one or more traumatic events during their lifetimes (Mann & Marwaha, 2020). Due to these findings and other important studies (e.g., the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study), it is increasingly understood that trauma-informed care should be a universal standard of care in health and human services and other systems of care. Trauma that occurs in childhood and adulthood produces lasting physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual effects. Trauma changes the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
