Using a Trauma Informed Lens

Personally, professionally, and purposefully

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) integrates core principles of neurodevelopment, trauma and attachment with mindful healing to support a comprehensive approach that can be used by clients, providers, and community members. This training is designed to support a shift in thinking, perception, and behavior. Looking through a Trauma Informed Lens means being sensitive to the impact of trauma on others and yourself, understanding and utilizing tools to support self and others in regulating during times of stress; as well as identifying and supporting the system change needed to reduce re-traumatization. Continuing our efforts toward a Trauma Informed SLO County will enhance resilience, increase connection and support stability within our community.
