Trauma-Informed Care (TIC)
Trauma-informed care is a perspective that acknowledges the pervasive influence and impact of trauma on a person’s mind, body, and spirit. For adults, trauma is caused by the exposure to the threat of death, serious injury, or sexual molestation (at any point in their lives). Learning about trauma experienced by a loved one is also a form of trauma. Trauma can be caused by:
- Direct exposure
- Witnessing (in person)
- Learning about an event affecting a close family member, friend, or loved one
- Experiencing repeated or extreme aversive details of trauma
People who have undergone severe trauma are often reluctant to seek treatment because they don’t want to live in the past. Refusing to accept a victim mentality can allow people to lead productive lives, but unhealed trauma will manifest itself in other destructive ways. Repressing a traumatic memory locks it away in your psyche, where it will wreak havoc on your subconscious, personal relationships, and general wellbeing. Ignoring a traumatic event will result in other mental health issues and relationship problems.
