TRAUMA INFORMED CARE

Cornerstone aims to operate as a trauma informed agency by:

  • Realizing the widespread impact of trauma and understanding the potential paths for recovery
  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system
  • Responding by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices
  • Seeking to actively resist re-traumatization
  • Adhering to the trauma informed care principles of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment
