SOUTH TEXAS TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE CONSORTIUM

Working to mitigate the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences by creating a Certified Trauma-Informed Care Bexar County.

The South Texas Trauma-Informed Care Consortium is a collaboration between The Children’s Shelter, Voices for Children and City of San Antonio Metro Health Department (The Partners). The consortium brings together community participants who are committed to addressing the impact of trauma. The Consortium’s goals are:

  • To educate the community about trauma, about the damage of trauma and re-traumatization, and about how widespread trauma-related damage is
  • To raise awareness of the importance of being trauma informed.
  • To build a resilient community and mitigate the effects of trauma related damage

What is Trauma Informed Care?

Trauma Informed Care is an organizational approach that understands and responds to the life-long potential impacts of trauma in the families that we serve.

Trauma Informed Care Approach emphasizes the physical, psychological and emotional safety for clients/work force/participants/patients and providers to assist trauma survivors to strengthen their resiliency, gain their empowerment and thrive.

Rather than asking “what is wrong with you?”, a trauma informed care approach asks, “what has happened to you?”
