Even before the COVID pandemic, trauma was widely prevalent in our society. The collective trauma we are all experiencing now as the result of this pandemic has only exacerbated the issue. Moreover, trauma has negatively affected organizations taxing already stressed systems of care and practitioner wellness. Trauma-informed care is an intervention and organizational approach that focuses on how trauma may affect an individual’s life and their response to services. This presentation will examine the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) study and explore the many faces of trauma and its prevalence in society. We will discuss how the application of the six values of trauma-informed care drive connection and can be applied in multiple service settings. Never has this topic been more relevant and needed to serve each other and those depending on us for help.
