Your Guide to Trauma-Informed Care: Our Latest Infographic
by Pat Shelly
One of many of the great things about the UB School of Social Work is its freely-shared online resources. We offer podcasts, curricular modules, how to leverage technology in social work and our very popular Self-Care Starter Kit.
The latest great resource is from our Institute on Trauma and Trauma-informed Care (ITTIC) : An infographic on the impact of trauma, retraumatization (what hurts) and trauma-informed care (what helps). It also outlines the five principles guiding trauma-informed practices.
Directed by faculty members Susan Green, LCSW and Thomas Nochajski, PhD, ITTIC has developed strategic partnerships with various community organizations. Together, collaborators work to promote the implementation of trauma-informed care across various disciplines in Western New York. Current partners work with ITTIC on developing trauma-informed care and benefit through the evaluation, trauma-specific treatment interventions, training, technical assistance, research and consultation offered by the institute. (Watch the YouTube video where the efforts to implement Trauma-Informed Care into agencies in Western New York are discussed.)
