How Can I Create a Trauma-Sensitive Environment for Families?

Building a friendly environment allows families to feel safe and supported in a medical office. As health staff, you can make sure that families are receiving the support they need for issues they may be facing. Families that have experienced past trauma also benefit from trauma-sensitive strategies in medical offices. Getting to know your patients, understanding family issues, and providing a warm physical environment can make families comfortable and provide a setting for positive communication.
