How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses

Research data indicate higher rates of trauma among justice-involved persons than the general population. The effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person‚Äôs 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.  Similarly, criminal justice professionals also deal with work related situations inducing trauma, PTSD and other anxiety related mental health issues impacting their ability to do their work.

This interactive training instructs on what trauma is and how to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, real-life experiences from persons affected, how to increase safety for criminal justice practitioners, and promote and support recovery of justice-involved persons.

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