6 TIPS TO HELP YOUR NONCLINICAL STAFF PRACTICE TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE

“Picture this: An individual arrives at your organization who has experienced trauma related to intimate partner violence. The receptionist at the front desk does not acknowledge the individual when they first walk through the lobby door, and when the individual speaks up, the receptionist does not smile or give a kind greeting. The individual immediately feels on guard, and fearful of upsetting the receptionist. This first interaction with your organization has created a sense of insecurity and fear, rather than a sense of safety and trust. . . ”

How can an organization support its nonclinical staff to learn about and practice trauma-informed care?
Here are six recommendations to help you get started.
