Trauma Informed Care is about understanding the impact of developmental trauma. Understanding that early/developmental trauma upsets the entire development of the person and limits the person's ability to use imagination and perception. Their lives become focused on survival where the need to learn and develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, and cognitively become overridden by the need to survive.
This is a relationship approach, knowing that through relationship, healing can and will happen. Trauma Informed Care is what happens at home as well as what happens in education and community.
