Trauma-informed therapists will ask the question “what happened to you?” versus “what is wrong with you?”. Trauma-informed therapists recognize that trauma impacts individuals in different ways, and will respond in a way that emphasizes physical and emotional safety, finding growth through collaboration, trust, and empowerment. The impact of trauma on children may be displayed through difficult behaviors throughout their lives; a child who isn’t old enough to “remember” a traumatic event may still experience the effect for years after. Trauma-informed therapies focus on ways to help process these traumatic memories and experiences so that life becomes more manageable. There are multiple ways in which trauma-informed therapists engage clients.
