Trauma that begins early in life is relentless and persistent and has been linked to the most severe symptoms of post-traumatic stress and poor child outcomes. Trauma-informed care provides children guidance from informed adults who can recognize and respond to the signs and impacts of trauma on young children and instill trauma awareness, knowledge, and skills into program habits, practices, and policies.
