The National Council believes that individuals, organizations, communities and systems can take specific actions to ease the burden of traumas from the past and minimize re-traumatization in the present and the future. It is not enough to just be trauma-informed organizations, but to be resilience-oriented at the individual, organizational and community/system levels. Resilience is the ability to adapt to trauma, tragedy and stress.
With a view toward being trauma-informed and building resilience in individuals, organizations and communities, the National Council offers training and consultation to increase knowledge, skills and abilities to move individuals, organizations and communities/systems forward in healing and building resilience.
Trauma-informed, resilience-oriented care is an organizational culture, structure and treatment framework built on understanding, recognizing and responding to all kinds of trauma.

Trauma-informed, resilience-oriented care asks not, “What’s wrong with you?” but, “What happened to you?” and “What’s strong with you?”
