Trauma is pervasive. We know that anyone can experience trauma, regardless of age, race, gender or socio-economic status. Over the past two to three decades we have learned a lot about trauma – its immediate and long-term impact but also what treatments and organizational practices are effective for helping individuals heal and build resilience.
