“It is so important to recognize the trauma in ourselves and in our patients. Before we can heal others, we must heal ourselves, and thus be prepared to empathize and understand our patients and their families. The Trauma-Informed Care education provided by Hopeworks was a wonderful, down-to-earth, and hands-on approach to this concept, taught by a local community organization. The faculty, residents, and students at Cooper are now better equipped to recognize and assess Adverse Childhood Experiences and their impact on themselves, their patients, and on the organization.”
