The UK Trauma Council has developed nine principles informed by an understanding of complex trauma, its effect on child development, and evidence-based responses that care givers, professionals and services can engage in to address the impacts of complex trauma.
- Establishing a common definition of complex trauma
- Promoting and stabilising trusted relationships
- Cultivating supportive interactions
- Actively enabling young people’s agency
- Recognising adaptations and building social connections
- Holistically responding to multiple needs
- Providing evidence-based interventions
- Tackling contextuality and systemic factors
- Supporting the workforce
