What is a trauma informed approach and why do we use it?
A trauma informed approach is a approach that reflects adherence to these six key principles:
2. Trustworthiness and Transparency
3. Peer Support
4. Collaboration and Mutuality
5. Empowerment, Voice and Choice
6. Cultural, Historical and Gender Issues
We utilize this approach, as it addresses the consequences of trauma and facilitates healing.
