I had the pleasure of joining Victor Montori to talk about trauma informed care (TIC) for the Mayo Clinic’s Knowledge and Evaluation Research (KER) Unit’s KERCast series. You can find the discussion below as well as on the KER Unit youtube channel and on any podcast platform by searching for the KER Unit. You can learn more about KER and find links to other a wealth of other interviews on everything from shared decision making to reducing the burden of research to particpatns to artificial intelligence here.
In this interview we cover everything from how I came to writing and teaching about TIC to why love is an important part of providing trauma informed care. We discuss concepts of gentle curiosity and universal precautions that can help transform health care into a healing space.
Of course this was only a jumping off point and will hopefully will bring others to want to learn more about TIC. For further reading, the following series gives a comprehensive overview of TIC:
- Trauma Informed Care Principles
- Trauma Informed Care in Practice
- Trauma Informed Care – Disclosures and Care Transitions
- Trauma Informed Care – Non-Clinical Staff Encounters
- Trauma Informed Care During COVID-19
- Betrayal Trauma in Health Care
I also quote Dr. Montori’s book Why We Revolt during the interview and highly recommend you give it a read as many of the concepts overlap with trauma informed care.
