Trauma-Informed Services

What is Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-Informed care is a framework for working with individuals and families in a way that understands the role trauma and adversity may have played in current functioning. Trauma-informed care strives to create physical, psychological, and emotional safety for individuals with every contact. To aid with this, trauma-informed care moves away from a "what's wrong with you" perspective and asks "what's happened". By taking this approach, trauma-informed services respond to and value the individual as a whole. In collaboration with the individual and family, we seek to develop treatment plans that are responsive and considerate of each person's goals, stressors, and needs. 

Who We See

The Attune Trauma and Regulation Centre provides services to children, youth, adults, and families. Parenting and caregiving support is also available, regardless of whether the child engages in direct treatment.

Referral concerns can include, but are not limited to:

  • Difficulties related to child abuse and neglect
  • Attachment concerns or issues related to adoption
  • Single-episode traumas 
  • PTSD
  • Psychological impact of medical-based trauma
  • Self-injury
  • Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder
  • Adjustment difficulties
  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety-based regulation concerns
  • Aggression

All referral questions are welcome. We can help direct you to best services either at the centre or elsewhere in the community.
