society, and as practitioners we often don’t know how to respond appropriately
to people who have experienced trauma. For this reason Blue Knot Foundation has
developed a Talking about Trauma series. Each publication in this series
supports a different audience to talk about trauma.
Knowing how to ‘talk about trauma’ is
essential to supporting traumatised people. It is also critical to driving
trauma-informed change, which fosters recovery. Research shows that
positive interactions assist trauma recovery. This includes personal social
interactions as well as those within services.
