Abstract

This poster will illustrate how the Trauma-Informed Care system of healing that is implemented at the Peace of the City afterschool program has affected the children who attend the program. Trauma Informed Care is a form of treatment that focuses on understanding, recognizing, and ultimately responding to the effects all kinds of trauma can have on an individual. The children who attend Peace of the City are often institutionalized from a very young age and may suffer from some forms of trauma due to unstable or unsafe home situations. This poster will illustrate the main principles of Trauma-Informed Care, how it has been properly implemented at Peace of the City, and how this kind of therapeutic system has affected the children at Peace of the City.
