Why Trauma Informed?

Cutting-edge research tells us that experiencing childhood emotional trauma can play a large role in whether we develop physical disease or mental health disorder in adulthood. This research tells us that what doesn’t kill you doesn’t necessarily make you stronger; far more often, the opposite is true. Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. As such, early experiences are an important public health issue. Much of the foundational research in this area has been referred to as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Learn more about ACE Study here.

Trauma Informed Care is necessary and paramount for working with individuals who have experienced adversity, especially in childhood. It allows providers to truly meet the individual where they’re at. Understanding how life’s experiences shape an individual’s beliefs of self, others and the world allows for a truly empathetic approach to healing. Understanding how trauma impacts the brain and body enhances a provider’s capacity to accept that the individual has done the best they can with the skills they have. Asking “what happened” as opposed to “what’s wrong” ameliorates shame and guilt about an individual’s narrative. A trauma informed approached creates rapport, safety, and, perhaps most importantly, relationship.

Trauma Sensitive Recovery Workgroup

Our workgroup meets the first Tuesday of every month from 9am-10am in Gilbert. Our mission is to move the trauma sensitive recovery conversation into every facet of substance use disorder treatment from staff to patients to family members. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us.

Trauma Informed Faith Community

Mission: To build resilient faith-based organizations as trauma informed community, facilitating sensitive care, training, resource sharing, advocacy and social movement, not compromising our own faith tradition but multiplying collaboration in the community for the greater good.

The Trauma Informed Faith Community meets every second Tuesday of the month from 10am-11:30am. The location and presentations vary however everyone is welcome to participate and learn how the faith community’s role in the trauma informed movement is crucial.

Trauma Programs

ZERO Suicide

Across health and behavioral health care settings, there are many opportunities to identify and provide care to those at risk for suicide. Before that can happen, suicide prevention must first be seen as a core responsibility of health care.

BRAVE Connections

Brave Connections is a peer to peer support program offering encouragement and assistance in whatever path of recovery you choose. Rather than focusing on the pathology of addiction we emphasize the cultivation of internal and external resources that can be drawn upon to initiate and sustain recovery.
