Trauma Informed Care in Peer Recovery Support

According to SAMHSA’s concept of a trauma-informed approach, “A program, organization, or system that is trauma-informed: 1.Realizes the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for recovery; 2.Recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system; 3.Responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and 4.Seeks to actively resist re-traumatization." A trauma-informed approach can be implemented in any type of service setting or organization and is distinct from trauma-specific interventions or treatments that are designed specifically to address the consequences of trauma and to facilitate healing.

  1. Participants will be able to define the terms trauma and trauma informed care.
