AVA has recently been doing a lot of work around trauma informed approaches. We are calling on all services who work with women affected by violence and abuse to recognise the need to implement a trauma informed approach.
- Creating trauma informed services involves understanding, recognising and responding to the effects of trauma.
- It also emphasises the physical, psychological and emotional safety of survivors and practitioners, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
AVA has been working with Homeless Link to explore how gender and trauma informed models can support women experiencing homelessness
AVA is now offering a new course on creating trauma informed services which is aimed at managers and people involved in service development. Book early to avoid disappointment.
