What is Trauma-Informed Therapy?
Trauma-informed therapy is a skill that centers on trauma history and a person’s needs. Different types of therapists use trauma-informed skills with other therapy techniques. These skills may include:
Some providers may have a certificate in trauma-informed care, but many providers who work with families and children will use trauma-informed methods. When interviewing a provider, it is a good idea to ask how they will use play to help your child.
You can find trauma-informed therapists in our directory by selecting “Child Counseling” (children) or “Caregiver Centered Care” (adults) in the first column. You can also contact one of our Family Resource Specialists for help.
