Although prevalence estimates vary, there is consensus that high percentages of justice-involved
women and men have experienced serious trauma throughout their lifetime. The reverberating effects
of trauma experiences can challenge a person’s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers
to accessing services, often resulting in an increased risk of coming into contact with the
criminal justice system.
How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses is a training program for
criminal justice professionals to:
  • Increase understanding of trauma
  • Create an awareness of the impact of trauma on behavior
  • Develop trauma-informed responses
Trauma-informed criminal justice responses can help to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, and
thereby increase safety for all, decrease recidivism, and promote and support recovery of
justice-involved women and men with serious mental illness. Partnerships across systems can also
help to link individuals to trauma-informed services and treatment for trauma.
Program Participants
This highly interactive training is specifically tailored to community-based criminal justice
professionals including:
  • Community corrections (probation, parole, and pre- trial services officers)
  • Court personnel
  • Police
  • Other human service providers
