Trauma Recovery Focused Approach Workshop

Private·2 groups-web.members.students


Trauma Recovery Focused Approach™ (TRFA) The TRFA operates from the belief that trauma impacts every person, and this is especially true of those who are seeking assistance from mental health and social service providers. However, trauma recovery support and guidance is far from accessible to the people most vulnerable in our communities. Even worse, many of the organizations and services available operate off outdated, ineffective, and harmful practices and policies, leading only to further harm those reaching out for help.

The TRFA assumes that every service provider must understand how trauma is experienced in the brain and body. Every provider needs to know how long-term exposure to trauma leads to the overuse of trauma responses, in turn, leading to difficulties in almost every aspect of life. A person who can never feel fully safe will experience the physiological, biological, neurological, and psychological implications of being in a survival state all of the time.

Providers who utilize the TRFAlearn how to identify signs of trauma exposure, how best to help someone who has been exposed to traumatic experiences feel safe, and how to guide them through the trauma recovery process.

Trauma recovery research is becoming increasingly more common, yet mental health and social service practices continue to operate as if this new information is not available. The TRFAoffers mental health and social service providers with the knowledge, tools, and skills to translate the latest trauma recovery research into real, sustainable healing.
