This study looked at past research on trauma informed practice to analyze its effectiveness.. There is sufficient research portraying the helpfulness of the trauma-informed approach; however, there is little research on whether it is effective as a theoretical intervention. The study looked at how different trauma-informed interventions have helped in diminishing the effect of trauma on different populations. The populations considered in the analysis include: women that have experienced domestic violence, children, individuals with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and youth that reside in neighborhoods with high levels of crime. Since trauma-informed care is currently considered a broad theoretical framework for practice, with this meta-analysis, we aim to establish it as a concrete evidence-based practice.
