What is trauma?

Providing trauma-informed care is only possible when we understand trauma and how it can impact a person. Trauma can have negative physical, social and mental health outcomes for children, adolescents and adults alike.

Our video explains what we mean by trauma and adversity, its impact and how a trauma response may be triggered.

Once we understand the profound impacts that experiences of trauma and adversity can have, it helps us to connect, be compassionate and assist families and children recover and thrive.”  – Nicola Palfrey, Director Australian Child & Adolescent Trauma Loss & Grief.
