Bill of Rights for Children in Care
The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development and Hope Street believe that in order to meet the needs of children, the significant adults in their lives (caregivers, educators, counselors, administrators, anyone who interacts with the child) must be well-versed and practiced in the essential components of trauma-informed care and service.

Growing awareness regarding trauma has led to the development of both trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive practices. Systems become trauma-informed by thoroughly incorporating, in all aspects of service delivery, an understanding of the prevalence and impact of trauma and the complex paths to fostering safety, avoiding re-traumatization, and ultimately healing.

Trauma-informed services are designed specifically to avoid re-traumatizing those served as well as those who serve. These services seek “safety first” and commit themselves to “do no harm.” Fallot, Harris, (2001), p.2.
