Resilient & Trauma-Informed Communities


Trauma can be caused by an event or experience that creates so much stress, it overwhelms a person’s ability to cope. It is more common than you think. For example, we know from studies that greater than half the population has suffered at least one trauma. One in six have suffered at least three or four different traumas. And even most sadly, for children, one in four will experience trauma by the age of four. As if the experience of trauma isn’t tragic enough, we know that when people experience three or four different traumas, they are more likely to suffer medical, emotional or behavioral consequences. This Work Group provides community presentations to increase awareness and understanding about trauma and provides support and assistance to organizations to create “resilient and trauma-informed” environments.
