Trauma informed approaches

Publication date: 23 September 2019

Knowledge of trauma and trauma informed approaches is important in mental health and addiction services given the high proportion of people who have experienced trauma. The acknowledgement of people’s experiences throughout their lives and their whānau is important for effective responses. The importance of trauma informed approaches is highlighted in Let’s get real and He Ara Oranga.

This short resource developed by Te Rau Ora, Le Va, Werry Workforce Whāraurau and Te Pou aims to raise awareness of what trauma is, the effects of trauma, and how to develop trauma informed approaches within our workforce and organisations.
