Trauma-Informed Care on Campus Briefing
On Thursday, April 19 at 1:00pm in 234 Cannon, the Bipartisan Task Force to End Sexual Violence will host a briefing on trauma-informed care on college and university campuses.
Sexual violence can be an extremely traumatizing experience that has various coping responses. Trauma-informed services account for the brain and body’s response to violence, as well as the various needs survivors may have after a traumatizing event. Understanding
trauma-informed care is a critical foundation of making policy that supports survivors of sexual violence in educational settings.
During this briefing, survivors and advocates from End Rape on Campus and Know Your IX will provide an overview of trauma-informed practices for campus sexual violence, resources for improvement, and the costs of institutional betrayal, as well as ways that various
systems and actors, including campus administration, Title IX officials, and police, did or did not provide a trauma-informed response to them. The briefing will outline the importance of responses that account for the unique needs of all survivors.
The briefing is open to all staff, interns, and members of the public.
