Description

Experiencing trauma can have devastating effects on an individual. This appears to be the case for justice-involved women and men, who have very high rates of trauma. People working with justice-involved people must learn about trauma, so they can respond in ways that avoid re-traumatizing, ensure the safety of all, reduce recidivism, and promote recovery. Learning about trauma helps to ease management, helps keep people out of the justice system, and helps staff do their jobs. When responding to someone, it is important to keep in mind that how we think about an issue will affect how we react or respond to it. Understanding trauma can shape our responses.
