Trauma Informed Care in Ireland is a Training Programme and Quality Support Initiative for Service Providers in Ireland
About Trauma Informed Care
Trauma is widespread and has far-reaching impacts on the health and well-being of individuals and their engagement with health and social care staff and services. Trauma experiences, and the lack of understanding of their impact on individuals, can create difficulties in relationships between service users and service providers. Safe and nurturing relationships between staff and service users is fundamental to recovery from trauma and positive engagement in services.
Trauma Informed Care in Ireland is a training and quality implementation programme for organisations committed to working in a trauma-informed way with all who use their services. Our vision is that all people who have survived trauma can access, and remain engaged with, services where they feel safe, supported and encouraged to heal and grow. We hope that individuals and communities traditionally most likely to disengage from services can stay engaged and feel safe, respected, empowered, trusted and welcomed.
The Trauma Informed Care in Ireland programme seeks to make accessible, high quality trauma and trauma-informed care training and resources available to the Irish Health and Social Care sector.
