Trauma-informed care requires an empathetic approach to treatment. Cultural, racial, ethnic, and socio-economic differences can present barriers to successfully aiding individuals seeking services. These barriers prevent the target demographic from seeking out services initially, but can also impede the treatment process. Overlooking factors integral to a client’s identity, personal goals, culture, background knowledge, and/or previous experiences can result in less than satisfactory results. As a trauma-informed treatment provider, it’s crucial that you are thinking critically about potential barriers to service for all clients.
Please choose one of the following case study snippets, paying special attention to potential barriers to treatment, and write a 1- to 2- page essay comparing and contrasting the the unique experiences of cultural, racial, and ethnic groups as they experience services that are, and are not, trauma-informed, and recommending treatment centers/facilities. Explain your reasoning with researched information from the text as well as your own independent research using scholarly materials from the WilmU databases (Links to an external site.).
