Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-informed care involves adjustment of service delivery in order to accommodate the challenges faced by clients due to intimate partner violence, household dysfunction, and abuse connected with, for example, sexual and gender identity, gender, and race. Traumas can manifest physically, mentally, and/or behaviorally and can be addressed by services that help enhance engagement in HIV care.
