Description: Trauma is a near universal experience of children and adults in our communities. A person’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, and spiritual. It is now the expectation that human-serving organizations and their staff view the people they serve through the trauma lens and competently intervene in this area. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma-informed and wellness and resilience-focused in order to best meet the needs of the people they serve.
