This month's article was published in Therapy Today, the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists magazine.
Trauma is, sadly, something our communities are seeing and feeling more and more. Yet, for healthcare professionals to say they are 'trauma-informed,' very little is required of them. This is deeply concerning considering the cultural, psychological and societal implications of trauma on individuals and communities. Healthcare professionals often end up doing more harm than good.
In this article I aim to raise awareness of this and suggest ways to start thinking about integrating trauma-informed into counselling modalities.
