Trauma informed care.

Dr Pam Stavropoulos

The majority of people presenting to mental health services have experienced complex trauma (secondary to child abuse, neglect, family/community violence or other adverse childhood events). Often their trauma is not acknowledged, identified or appropriately addressed. It is important to consider the possibility of undisclosed or unaddressed childhood trauma underlying not just mental health presentations, but those accessing a range of human services. This presentation challenges the current system of classification for complex trauma and values practitioners asking the question "What happened to you?" at the core of people's presentations.
