Trauma-Informed Care in General Practice

On-demand recorded 30 Mar 2021

Traumatic experiences such as violence, abuse and neglect are common and can adversely impact health and wellbeing. Trauma-Informed Care in General Practice can promote healing, recovery and wellness. Trauma-Informed Care is based on evidence of how trauma affects people’s lives and their service needs. It recognises and accepts that symptoms, responses and behaviours, which may be perceived as difficult, can often be strategies to cope with trauma.
