The Department of Social Work, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus, organized a Workshop on Trauma-Informed Care on August 30, 2016. 

Social workers meet with various clients in a wide range of settings, and while each client has different needs and goals and requires different care approaches, the common thread that should bind the social workers treating them is an awareness of trauma-informed care. Trauma-informed care is based on an understanding of the vulnerabilities or triggers of trauma survivors.Trauma-informed care also can be viewed as an overarching philosophy and approach, or even as a set of universal precautions, designed to be both preventive and rehabilitative in nature, in which the relationship among environment, triggers, and perceived dangers is noted and addressed.

Elenore Snow, Social Worker & Clinical Psychologist, USA, interacted with MSW students in department regarding various traumas and also the scope of the social work profession in USA.
