Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care

Nov 11, 2016

Our good friends at QNADA recently highlighted this document, which we felt was worth sharing with Dovetail subscribers. The "Practice Guidelines for the treatment of complex trauma and trauma informed care and service delivery" from the Blue Knot Foundation (formerly known as ASCA - Adult Survivors of Child Abuse) was developed in 2012, and uses the latest research into the neurological and physiological impacts of trauma. They also include principles, policies and procedures needed for their implementation. The purpose of the guidelines is to inform workers in clinical practice and health and human service settings about new ways of understanding and responding to trauma. You will need to register to download the guidelines, or you can purchase a hard copy.
