December 2, 2013

Cover Page

The Federal Partners Committee on Women and Trauma has released "Trauma-Informed Approaches: Federal Activities and Initiatives," developed with support from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA's) National Center for Trauma-Informed Care. The report documents the scope and impact of violence and abuse on women and girls and highlights gender-responsive, trauma-informed approaches that more than three dozen federal agencies, departments, and offices have implemented. The report encourages other governmental and nongovernmental agencies to adopt a cross-sector, interagency, intersystem recognition of and response to trauma.
