Abstract: As society reluctantly starts to accept just how common inter-personal trauma is in our community, it is vital that all mental health services, and the staff working in them, fully understand both what trauma is, and how to work in ways that are respectful towards people who have experienced trauma. This paper aims, from a consumer perspective, to translate some of the theory around trauma-informed care into practical, concrete examples to help you practice in a way that is more empathetic and compassionate towards those of us who have experienced trauma.
