Frontline Initiative: Trauma-Informed Care
A newsletter issue for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) exploring trauma-informed care. This issue of Frontline Initiative provides background information on trauma-informed care and offers DSPs specific ways to provide positive, trauma-informed supports. All people can experience trauma; traumatic experiences can make a person feel threatened and can have lasting effects on a person's life. Trauma-informed care is an approach that affirms the lasting impact that traumatic experiences can have on people's lives, and how those experiences can impact a person's present actions. Trauma-informed care takes a thoughtful approach about these experiences. It is proactive in providing support that helps prevent further crises.
