Talking about trauma: Guide to conversations and screening for heath and other service providers

Talking about trauma for services

 Many service providers feel poorly equipped to have conversations with people they know or suspect have experienced trauma.

 

This Blue Knot publication helps service providers to know when and how to ‘talk about trauma’ or to screen for trauma. This is not about clinical or specialist treatment. Research shows that positive relational experiences assist trauma recovery while negative social interactions impede it. Daily interactions in services can play a major role supporting recovery from trauma.
