Experiencing a trauma at sometime in a persons’ life can change or affect the way they act years later. Whether its an event, violence, automobile accident or exposure to abuse, a persons’ thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be impacted later on in life and filtered through this perspective.
Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. Karen Sandnes, Manager of Social Services at PPI will join us to talk about childhood trauma and how it can affect people as they grow older.
