Why Should Healthcare Providers Care About Trauma-Informed Care?

"​Stress operates along a continuum. In small or moderate doses, stress can be beneficial. However, stressful experiences in childhood that are powerful, frequent, prolonged, and in unpredictable doses can be detrimental to a child’s development and life-long health. ​Clinicians and staff in the health care field have a unique opportunity to address toxic stress in individuals and advocate for developing systems that build strong, stable, nurturing communities."
