Ravenwood Health is a Trauma Informed Agency

Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

“Being trauma informed means that we don’t dictate or preach, but instead invite traumatized individuals to become active participants in their own healing. We can accomplish this by engaging participants in sensory-based and mind-body activities that encourage exploration of trauma themes, such as worry, hurt and anger that are impacting their lives. We strive to move participants from victim to survivor thinking as they participate in individual or group activities”

(Dr. Caelan Kuban, 2013).
