The Changes

  • Social

    Changes in fundamental notions about relationships shift as you become trauma-informed and responsive.

  • Technical

    Diagnostic and prescribing patterns shift as healthcare facilities become trauma-responsive. Additionally, people change their frame of reference about themselves.

  • Systems

    As organizations (and individuals) become more aware of and adjust system elements, they also revisit policies, processes, and methods of accomplishing work.
