Letter to the Editor Graphic

As Ashland community members consider the meaning of trauma and the potential benefits of having a trauma-informed court, questions arise in my mind about what more could be done to develop a trauma-informed community.

Could Ashland be a model of what steps need to be taken to build a community that is not only trauma-informed and trauma-responsive, but is actually recovery-focused? What would it take to build and implement an approach that is truly multigenerational, that looks at abuse from a life course perspective?
