Description: 

The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatci event has ended.  Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social services systems.  Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve our services.
