Abstract:
Trauma and adverse childhood experiences can have lifelong effects on emotional, behavioral, and physical health. Health providers, along with state and federal policy makers, are calling for increasing trauma-informed care and trauma-informed approaches across health, social service, and education sectors. Occupational therapy practitioners are likely to work with individuals with a history of trauma across many settings, and it is imperative to have a working knowledge of ways to support these individuals. This article outlines basic principles related to trauma, trauma-informed approaches, and research that may assist practitioners in understanding how trauma-informed approaches align with core tenets of occupational therapy and how to facilitate best care for those they serve across all settings and environments.
