“Trauma is what the person experiences inside and is not the event itself...
It's not drama, it's trauma!
so one child may be experiencing traumatic stress while another may not.”
Dr. Bruce Perry and Kristie Brandt, NP, DNP
At the root of much human suffering, you will find trauma.
The mission of the Trauma-Sensitive Awareness Foundation, Inc. is to help those who suffer from trauma, and those who care about them, to better understand what trauma is and how it manifests in the nervous system.
Our website has been designed as a refuge for you, creating a calm learning environment. We have curated multimedia resources from leaders in the field of trauma research and will refresh our content regularly. We hope you will visit often to find hope and healing.
Becoming aware of, and sensitive to, the body and mind's response to trauma, you may actually save someone's life.
