16. CALL ME LAZARUS- Why isn't a trauma-informed therapeutic model of care used in every residential care setting for children?
Why isn't a trauma-informed therapeutic model of care used in every residential care setting for children? Adela and Stephan answer this question and discuss its implications in a sector that appears to be drifting away from evidence based trauma informed care. They also reflect on this year's outcomes, Adela's triumphant return from Death's door with newly acquired superpowers, and the tendency for services to be 'trauma aware', rather than 'trauma informed'.
