The focus of the Wisconsin Hawthorn Project is to support and guide child and family-serving entities in their organizational development of trauma-informed policies and practices. Trauma informed organizations recognize the impact of traumatic stress on families and communities and use this understanding to inform policies, practices, and interactions with those served. Sustaining organizational change toward becoming a trauma-informed organization requires comprehensive and creative planning and training to understand trauma-informed principles and implement practices that reduce re-traumatization and promote resiliency.
