Trauma and stress are correlated to many disruptive health conditions and account for a substantial amount of the financial and social resources contributed toward maintaining health and promoting wellness. Implementation of trauma-informed care in higher education impacts student and faculty learning; current and future professionals’ provision of care; patients’ and participants’ quality of care and life, and access to healing; and ultimately, the social determinants of health. An “Introduction to Trauma-Informed Care” workshop was developed and delivered to students in health-related disciplines with the intent to create access to trauma-informed concepts and practices. Evaluations determined that the workshop was positively received and contributed to participants’ increased interest in and understanding of the significance of trauma-informed care as it pertains to their learning and future careers.
