Yes, most of us in family services are now able to recognize trauma-symptoms and respond with empathy… most of the time But what does it mean to be truly trauma-informed? For a start, it means that we have patience with others and ourselves as we seek to acquire the skills and attitudes of a trauma-informed practice. Calling out other people for being judgmental?
