Resilience Week: Hampton Roads Trauma-Informed Community Network

Posted:  -  By: Chlo'e Edwards

The Hampton Roads Trauma-Informed Community Network (HRTICN) is one of over 20+ community networks championing resilience in their community during this time. These networks raise awareness, conduct trainings, create and implement trauma-informed practices across an array of sectors, including schools, faith communities, courts, community services, and more. Audravette Jackson serves as the Hampton Roads Trauma-Informed Community Network coordinator, and the Children’s Hospital of King’s Daughters serves as the backbone with the support of the United Way of South Hampton Roads.

With a multidisciplinary lens and a mission to promote an understanding of how trauma affects individuals and communities, the network is advocating for a community that strives to look at people holistically, and more further, empowers everyone to reach their full potential. People all over the world are currently coping with the impact of the COVID-19. Communities face the trauma of the pandemic, social isolation, disruption of normalcy, exacerbated inequities, anxiety, and more. Today, trauma-informed community networks are working to realize, recognize, respond, and resist retraumatization in mitigation of the trauma their communities are experiencing. Year-long, these networks have prepared and implemented community resilience; during these challenging times, their work is more prevalent than ever.
