The Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care (ITTIC) continues to recognize the need for individuals, organizations and systems to look beyond the lens of individual trauma. We are excited to share with you our newly updated infographic illustrating system and relationship dynamics that are often experienced as being re-traumatizing.
- The infographic is a free, downloadable tool that provides practical considerations of how individual, historical, systemic and structural trauma may be activated in day-to-day policies, procedures and interactions.
- Trauma-informed approaches allow for the opportunity to intentionally respond to the presence of all experiences of trauma and neutralize potential re-traumatization, which creates possibility for resilience, inclusion, equity, healing and growth.
- Being trauma-informed requires all of us to acknowledge how one’s self view and world view influences their interpretation of the present and truly reflect on the way we do our work. We truly believe it is not possible to be a trauma-informed organization without also committing to a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.
