When a person is overwhelmed by events or situations, they experience trauma and react with extreme fear, terror, and helplessness. Severe stress depletes a person's ability to cope as a result.

70% of adults or at least 223 million people in the United States have been through a traumatic incident at least once in their lives. Trauma has been linked to chronic health problems such as diabetes, COPD, heart disease, cancer, and high blood pressure. Trauma-informed practices found in mental recovery service providers, such as Transcend Recovery Community, find ways in dealing with trauma-sensitive patients and assist them in their recovery as they transition to a life of normalcy.

What Is Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-Informed care (TIC), as defined by mental health services administration, refers to a human services approach toward a person with a history of trauma. The national center for mental health advocates for TIC in a broader scope, mainly in organizations, integrating a culture of respect & understanding for people who have undergone adverse childhood experiences, traumatic experiences, traumatic stress, emotional abuse, and substance abuse.

It takes into consideration an individual's physical and emotional safety as part of injury prevention and mental well-being, as endorsed by health care organizations. TIC cultivates awareness and sensitivity in people in considering one's background which may include substance abuse and mental health problems from the impact of trauma.

A trauma-informed approach provides a safe space and strong support to many patients who experienced trauma, assuring them that they are not less or marginalized due to their trauma symptoms and past.

What Are The Principles Of Trauma-Informed Care?

It revolves around these six guiding principles in putting systems addressing patient care and fine-tuning an organization's approach to trauma.


Patients must feel at all times secure when in the care of physicians and other healthcare personnel.

Transparency and Integrity

Establishing honesty and trust is important for trauma-informed care specialists and patients so that they can feel safe, valued, and respected.

Peer Support

Health providers must recognize and consider various traumatic situations and how these impact patients. Medical professionals must also have access to therapy and paid time off to avoid workplace stress to avoid triggering trauma to patients due to potential stress-induced outbursts.

Mutual Collaboration and Understanding

Patient and their health provider should team up in improving trauma-informed care, by identifying medical practices that would help the department in creating an effective trauma-informed approach.

Empowerment, Voice, and Choice

The voices of patients are essential to present an effective trauma-informed approach in their treatment. Nurses must empower and encourage patients to regain control of their health to avoid re-traumatization.

Cultural Issues

It is necessary to remove discrimination toward an individual's background for a successful trauma-informed care program. Cultural variations in patients must be considered and must be one of the guiding principles when providing for their needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Trauma-Informed Care?

TIC allows helps patients create a trusting relationship with their health provider, as well as reduce emotional exhaustion among healthcare professionals, minimize traumatic events, alleviate symptoms, and improve practices within the institution.

Preventing Re-Traumatization

Healthcare providers who are forcing people to recount their trauma may induce symptoms and therefore worsen their situation. That's why TIC should always be considered all the time.

Promoting Safety In Patients

Building a haven for patients raises their chances of taking part in their therapy and enhances honesty with their healthcare providers, especially in speaking their minds.

Who Receives Trauma-Informed Care?

It is important to recognize that TIC is not only beneficial for an individual and their family who need their trauma disorders addressed and treated, but it is also for people who have experienced a great deal of burden due to discrimination, either from their race, sexual orientation, or background.

Fine-tuning the procedures or approach for each unique case would help an individual recover properly from their current trauma-induced situation. This avoids their psychological health degradation, leading to long-term dual diagnosis therapy or anxiety disorder treatment.

A mental health services administration's assessment of an individual's trauma is crucial to find the appropriate course of treatment, whether it may involve addiction recovery or specific behavior therapies that would impact their overall recovery.
