This webinar featured Katy Davis, Ph.D., Director of Trauma-informed Care Initiative at the University of San Francisco Women’s HIV Clinic and Wendy Ellis, Project Director of the Building Community Resilience Collaborative at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. Presenters shared their experiences by incorporating principles of trauma-informed care in both clinical and non-clinical settings. Dr. Katy Davis discussed the trauma-informed primary care intervention practiced at the UCSF Women’s HIV clinic, along with reflections on client feedback and next steps for the program. Wendy Ellis discussed her experience with the Building Community Resilience program, working with community-based partners to deliver trauma-informed services that account for and address community-level trauma.
The significance of trauma has become an increasingly accepted tenet of complex care. While there is general agreement on the core principles of trauma-informed care and that trauma can negatively impact an individual’s health and wellbeing, there are many ways to apply a trauma-informed approach in different settings.
