    From the Roots of Trauma to the Flowering of Trauma Informed Care is a report that documents the Texas Muslim Women's Foundation's journey towards becoming a trauma informed agency. It covers "learning about types of trauma and trauma-informed care, assessing existing culturally-sensitive practices that enhanced trauma-informed care and identifying ones that needed to be added, training staff, and working with researchers to document and build a body of evidence-based practice – all the while staying survivor-centered." 

    If you're an advocate serving domestic violence survivors from culturally-sensitive communities, a researcher, program evaluators, policy maker, and/or working in community-based-organizations, I'd recommend giving this report a read! It clearly outlines lessons learned about he process of building evidence, measuring impact, designing culturally relevant tools, and addressing the types of trauma communities experienced. If nothing else, take a moment to appreciate the graphic on the cover page, which illustrates components of trauma and the impacts of trauma informed care for individuals, groups and communities.
