Trauma responsive care is an increasingly important aspect of providing services to immigrants, refugees and other low-income individuals. This approach to care takes into account the experiences of an individual and how those potentially traumatic events shape their response to new and stressful environments and the coping mechanisms that form over time. Understanding trauma and its effect on behavior is crucial to working with both adults and children. A number of our staff  are certified trainers through programs offered by the City of Columbus as well as Masters level trainers through the ChildTrauma Academy (Dr. Bruce Perry and NMT/NME), Think:KIDS (Dr. Stuart Ablon, Harvard University) and other academic programs. These training can particularly useful for teachers and students as well as other professionals and service providers in the community.
