Trauma Informed Care

Northwest Journey is a participant in the Wisconsin Trauma Project collaborative in Polk (2014) and Barron Counties (2012, 2015) working to bring an end to the stigma of trauma, to develop a trauma-informed lens in health care and community systems, and to address the public health impact of trauma in our communities.  Northwest Journey has also supported learning collaboratives for parents and caregivers who may have experienced trauma and/or are caring for youth who are living with its effects.

Our approach includes understanding the impact that trauma has on youth, families and communities, as well as addressing trauma in all aspects of day treatment including assessment, treatment, and advocacy.

In 2015, Northwest Journey began a year-long staff development and learning collaborative to support a trauma informed care focus in our partnership with youth and families living with mental health challenges.

Trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy is available at many Northwest Journey sites.  We are committed to supporting the resilience and creative capacity for expression and growth of every family that we work with at Northwest Journey.
