Trauma Informed Care Supporting Healing and Growth

The term "trauma-informed care" is frequently used, but what does it really mean?

Trauma-informed care shifts the focus from asking, "What's wrong with you?" to understanding, "What happened to you?" This approach recognizes the importance of gaining a comprehensive understanding of a client's past and present life circumstances to deliver effective services with a healing orientation.

The goals of trauma-informed care are to:

  • Acknowledge the widespread impact of trauma and explore pathways to recovery.

  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, and staff.

  • Respond in a sensitive and appropriate manner that allows individuals to express themselves, be seen, and feel validated.

  • Resist and actively avoid re-traumatization.

Many individuals find that experiences from their childhood continue to affect their psychological well-being, even if they appear unrelated to current challenges. Untreated trauma can impede emotional, social, and physical health.

What makes trauma-informed care unique is its reimagining of the client-coach relationship. The coach is not positioned as an authority figure, but rather as a partner who works alongside individuals throughout their recovery journey. They provide support, guidance, and encouragement for healing and personal growth.

At Wylde Space, we are committed to practicing trauma-informed care and creating a safe and empowering environment for our clients. We recognize the impact of trauma and are dedicated to supporting your healing and growth.
