Why Should I Become Trauma-Informed?

Trauma-Informed Care is the concept of understanding that individuals have been through some type of trauma and that their traumatic experiences may still be making an impact on them today. Leaders are beginning to recognize the impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on lifelong social, physical, and emotional health and are beginning to adopt and integrate Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) approaches into their organizations.

New policies are aimed to reduce traumatic stress and promote resiliency. The following are just a few of the expected outcomes after your organization adopts a trauma-informed approach:

  • Improved workplace health and safety
  • Increased workforce stability
  • Increased employee retention
  • Improved employee satisfaction scores
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Improved timeliness from employees
  • Improved productivity
  • Cost saving

Trauma-informed training can help build safe, caring, and inclusive environments for you and your coworkers by acknowledging the importance of understanding different life experiences. Becoming trauma-informed is key to making a positive impact on the lives of everyone in your organization, including the people you serve.
