For practitioners

Practitioner help

Understanding the physical and emotional impact trauma may have on the brain and body can help practitioners to understand behaviours and make more informed decisions. 6 principles of trauma informed practice

6 principles of trauma informed practice

There are six principles that act as a guide for developing trauma informed practice (adapted from Fallot & Harris, 2006):

1. Safety

I don’t feel threatened

2. Trust

They do what they say.

3. Peer support

I feel supported

4. Collaboration

We are in this together

5. Empowerment/person-centred

I am taking control of my life

6. Cultural, historical and gender issues

I am being seen and heard
