Thank you for the article and sharing your experience. I agree with your version of what trauma informed care should look like. Personally it has always irked me when I hear about “trauma-informed” professionals. That they received training and education on how to “handle” a person experiencing a trauma event. In my experience I don’t need to re-live any traumatic event without my permission. I don’t need my power taken away from me. And that’s what it feels like when I’m not the one to initiate a conversation about my traumatic experiences. All the times I’ve received “help” for any crisis has only left me more trauma memories. How does that make sense? When a person in duress needs care and reaches out, the outcome is worse? It disgusts me. I can only hope that I will continue to heal through what I have learned. Thanks.
