Engaging Women in Trauma-Informed Peer Support: A Guidebook

PEG updated coverThis guide was created by the National Center on Trauma-Informed Care as a technical assistance document to help make trauma-informed peer support available to women who receive or have received services in behavioral health or other human service systems. It is designed as a resource for peer supporters in these or other settings who want to learn how to integrate trauma-informed principles into their relationships with the women they support or into the peer support groups of which they are members. The goal is to provide peer supporters both male and female with the understanding, tools, and resources needed to engage in culturally responsive, trauma-informed peer support relationships with women.

The guide can be downloaded as a single file (8MB) or chapter by chapter through the links below.
