Psychological trauma is a major public health issue affecting the health of people, families and communities. Recent evidence from the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) studies clearly shows the enormous burdens that trauma places not only on mental health services but also across social care, physical health, and justice provision.Trauma Informed Practice is designed to help staff at all levels working in Health and Social Care to engage clients whose background of traumatic experiences may be impacting on their successful use of services. Trauma Informed Practice is not specifically designed to treat trauma related difficulties, instead it seeks to address the barriers that those affected by trauma can experience while accessing the care, support and treatment they require for a healthy life. Those most in need may also be hardest to reach and most unlikely to engage with services. Trauma Informed Practice is aimed at supporting staff to provide the best services possible across Health and Social Care.
