When a person is overwhelmed by events or situations, they experience trauma and react with extreme fear, terror, and helplessness. Severe stress depletes a person's ability to cope as a result.

70% of adults or at least 223 million people in the United States have been through a traumatic incident at least once in their lives. Trauma has been linked to chronic health problems such as diabetes, COPD, heart disease, cancer, and high blood pressure.

Trauma-informed practices found in mental recovery service providers, such as Transcend Recovery Community, find ways in dealing with trauma-sensitive patients and assist them in their recovery as they transition to a life of normalcy.

What Is Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is a human service approach that assumes that a person has a history of trauma. It understands the existence of trauma symptoms and the importance trauma poses in an individual's life.

On a broader scope, such as in an organization or more comprehensive system, Trauma-Informed Care transforms organizational culture by underlining respect with the appropriate response to the effects of trauma in all aspects. It is also employed in broader settings, including mental health and substance abuse therapy, seen at child welfare systems and criminal and education institutions.

Trauma-Informed Care cultivates awareness to the point where it is almost second nature and pervasive in all service responses. It also entails a change in thinking. So, instead of posing the question "What is wrong with this person?" it is now changed to "What has happened to this person?" It can be used as a means for therapists and specialists to better understand and attend to their patient's particular needs and situations.

Trauma-Informed Care's goal is not to relieve symptoms or issues associated with sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or any other form of trauma, but instead to offer additional services and support in an appropriate and accessible fashion to those who may have suffered from trauma.

Does Transcend Recovery Community Offer Trauma-Informed Care?

Transcend specializes in trauma-informed care by utilizing its therapy programs focused on dealing with trauma-induced mental disorders. It believes that by incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT in its programs, patients may see constant improvement and eventual recovery through constant practice.

Transcend uses a three-step method to assist patients with cognitive restructuring, which transforms a pessimistic thought pattern into a more beneficial viewpoint. It starts with:

First, identifying negative ideas and listing them in a journal;
dissecting and challenging those anxiety-triggering thoughts; and
lastly, formulating rational and practical thoughts as a result of evidence collected in the preceding stages.

What Are The Principles Of Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-Informed Care revolves around these six guiding principles in putting systems addressing patient care and fine tuning an organization's approach with trauma.

Security

Patients must feel at all times secure when in the care of physicians and other healthcare personnel.

Transparency and Integrity

Nurses must be open and honest with patients to establish confidence, particularly when they have experienced traumatic events such as domestic violence, attack, or other types of abuse.

Peer Support

Nurses, physicians, and other medical practitioners must consider various traumatic situations and how they impact patient care to provide adequate trauma-informed care. Additionally, employees must also have access to therapists and be encouraged to take paid time off to avoid workplace stress; this is to prevent further triggering of trauma to patients brought about by their stress-induced traumas.

Mutual Collaboration and Understanding

Patients should be seen as collaborators in the initiative to create care plans by nurses and medical organizations. Patients become active participants in their treatment decisions due to teamwork, especially if they are given more responsibility for achieving their healthcare needs.

Empowerment, Voice, and Choice

Patients' voices should be considered in healthcare decisions to avoid re-traumatization. Nurses must strive to motivate traumatized patients to reclaim control of their health. Nurses should allow patients to feel comfortable sharing their experiences to do this.

Cultural Issues

Nurses, physicians, and other staff members must consider and remove any possible ethnic, racial, gender, or other prejudices to provide successful trauma-informed treatment. When a patient is seeking treatment, cultural variations should also be considered. Processes and guidelines should be established by organizations and healthcare practitioners to meet patients' cultural needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-informed treatment allows patients to participate more actively in their health care, cultivate a trusting relationship with their provider, and increase long-term health outcomes. Trauma-informed treatment may also reduce emotional exhaustion among healthcare professionals, potentially lowering the turnover rate.

Preventing Re-Traumatization

Adopting trauma-informed treatment as a central approach to healthcare allows care providers to consciously prevent re-traumatization, which worsens the condition and may lead to more psychiatric disorders in the long run. Forcing people to retell their stories can result in re-traumatization in most cases.

Promoting Safety In Patients

Building a haven for patients raises their chances of taking part in their therapy and enhances honesty with their healthcare providers, especially in speaking their mind.

Who Receives Trauma-Informed Care?

There are a lot of situations wherein Trauma-Informed Care may benefit many people. Individuals who have suffered severe traumatic episodes in their lives are the more apparent receivers of this treatment.

Patients who have experienced a great deal of burden from emotional, physical, or sexual abuse might potentially develop posttraumatic stress disorder and may experience underlying mental issues as a result. Therefore, Trauma-Informed Care may help them cope better with their mental health issues, especially when working with trauma-informed specialists and care providers to avoid triggering any memories from their past experiences. These patients may avail inpatient rehabilitation treatment in the form ofof anxiety disorder treatment or dual diagnosis to further address their needs when in therapy.

Sufferers of addiction can also take advantage of receiving Trauma-Informed Care. Drug abuse and alcoholism have become a means for most patients to numb their pain and mask the past trauma that they might have potentially experienced during childhood or in the span of their adult lives. Addiction recovery programs guided by Trauma-Informed Care principles can help specialists better understand where their addiction is stemming from and identify the trauma that comes alongside their mental issues.

Trauma-informed care is also designed for healthcare providers, such as nurses, caregivers, and physicians who might be enduring their traumas, especially when working in such a highly stressful environment. Therefore, healthcare professionals need to apply trauma-informed care practices to themselves as well.
