Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing experience. The impact of trauma is prevalent, tailor-made to one’s past and generally comes without warning. Individuals, organizations and communities can take specific actions to understand the burden of past traumas and minimize re-traumatization in the present and future. The National Apartment Association (NAA) and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing believe organizations must go beyond being trauma informed and become resilience oriented.
