The Impact of Trauma on Women and Girls Across the Lifespan:
What every health and social service provider needs to know about the importance of providing trauma-informed services to women and girls across the lifespan.

The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic 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.

• Trauma in the lives of women and girls
• Trauma-informed practices
