How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses - NYC

Research data indicate higher rates of trauma among justice-involved persons than the general population. The effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person's capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services, often resulting in an increased risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system.

This interactive training instructs on what trauma is, how to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, increase safety for them and practitioners, potential to decrease recidivism, and promote and support recovery of justice-involved persons.

Although this training is designed with criminal justice practitioners in mind, (community corrections, court personnel, and law enforcement), behavioral health providers working with justice involved persons may also find it useful in understanding core issues of trauma and trauma-informed approaches.
