As a 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. These will be launched progressively over 2019.
Knowing how to ‘talk about trauma’ is essential to supporting traumatised people. It is also critical to driving trauma-informed change, which fosters recovery.
That’s because research shows that positive interactions assist trauma recovery. This includes personal social interactions as well as those within services.
