We would like to thank all the dedicated people from case study areas for taking their time to contribute to this toolkit, explaining how and why their services are trauma responsive and the motivators and barriers to delivering these invaluable services.
We would also like to thank our expert panel for their contributions and Resilience Learning Partnership for their support in ensuring we could include people with lived experience throughout this project.
We have met some inspirational people over the two year journey of this project and we hope their experiences will prove useful to Scottish organisations wanting to start their journey to becoming trauma-informed.
This Trauma Informed Practice Toolkit has been written by Dr Amy Homes and Dr Graeme Grandison, The Rivers Centre, NHS Lothian.
