Resources for a Trauma Informed Community

Trauma is a widespread, harmful and costly public health problem. Trauma can include homelessness and transience, unemployment, disaster, war, poverty, substance abuse, domestic violence, and abuse and neglect. Traumatic exposure cuts across age groups, gender identity, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, geography and sexual orientation. Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing that people often have many different types of trauma in their lives. A trauma-informed community involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. The resources listed here focus on trauma-informed and resilience-building practices.
