Trauma Care Resources

There is a wide range of opinions on how to address the impact of trauma on displaced people as well as how to care for those who work with them. Below are some materials from a variety of sources. Our inclusion of these materials does not imply any endorsement by the collaborators of this project. However, our hope is that you find the materials that are most helpful for you and your community.
