Women and Trauma: A Working Document
Individuals concerned with violence perpetrated against women and girls in our society need to read this report. A new way to address trauma in any setting, called trauma-informed care, is described, noting that it is “a way for different agencies and groups to come together around a common concern…The report provides an introduction to the key issues facing each participating agency, with statistics documenting the impact of violence against women and girls on their mission and information on how each department is responding” (p. 7-8). Sections following an executive summary include: introduction and call to action; the importance of listening to first-hand experience; trauma as a cross-cutting issue; getting into action; and new partners and next steps.
