Trauma is one of the drivers for the way a person responds to various activities in a dialog. Often the behavior driven from a trauma informed response appears to be pejorative, and an intuitive practitioner often misjudges, confronts, advises, teaches or holds the person accountable.
Such approaches lack understanding of the recipient’s experiences and responses and may re-injure and be further traumatic or worsen their ability to benefit from intervention.
The use of any evidence-based practice is founded in the principle of “Attunement”.
For any behavior change issue, from engagement through participation, improvements in health behaviors, or changes in any life domain, the practitioner is most effective if the first goal is to understand how the person works the world from drives that originated long before supports and services were sought.
