Trauma-Informed Design is a cutting-edge concept that explores how the built design can help folks heal and thrive from Trauma. For decades, trauma-informed care services have been offered in places as diverse as homeless shelter, affordable housing, prison, and now even schools. Our multi-disciplinary team of architects, social workers, and environmental engineers have pursued research in how the built design can help individuals heal from trauma – basing our work on best practices from trauma-informed care. The presentation will explore (1) how our brain works/responds to trauma, (2) the results from our 3.5 years of TID research specifically centering the voices of the unhoused, and (3) how to bring a TID lens to a design process.
