- "Trauma-informed" is a term that has been used more frequently in recent years, especially by professionals offering to help people heal from trauma.
- The term refers to a basic awareness and understanding of trauma and how to avoid retraumatizing or triggering someone who has experienced trauma.
- However, there is no standard definition of what it means to be trauma-informed, and it can range from having read a book on trauma to having attended specialized training.
- Being trauma-informed can be beneficial for professionals in various fields, such as yoga instructors and teachers, who may encounter trauma survivors in their work.
- While being trauma-informed is important, it may not be sufficient on its own to fully heal trauma. Additional specialized treatment may be necessary.
