Trauma-informed practice in behavioral health services

Why screen for trauma in every patient? According to SAMSHA, “Unrecognized, unaddressed trauma symptoms can lead to poor engagement in treatment, premature termination, greater risk for relapse of psychological symptoms or substance use, and worse outcomes. Screening can also prevent misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment planning. People with histories of trauma often display symptoms that meet criteria for other disorders.” Learn more and see recommendations for screening and assessment here:
