This study examined trauma-informed practices of mental health professionals around the world. The literature indicates that many practitioners feel unprepared and unequipped to therapeutically work with individuals who have experienced trauma-related psychological disorders (SAMHSA, 2014). This is a concerning reality since approximately 90% of individuals receiving services in public health care settings have experienced trauma (SAMHSA, 2015). This poster offers recommendations to improve training programs to better prepare future mental health professionals to work with clients impacted by trauma.
