Addressing trauma: Resources to help you
CPO has developed information sheets to help neighbourhoods affected by violence and trauma. Visit our website for resources and handouts for residents, community leaders and service providers, including what to do when a violent incident happens or how to help a child deal with trauma.
Support networks to help affected communities
Post Incident Neighbourhood Support Networks (PINS networks) are now available in many communities city-wide to help coordinate support and resources for neighbourhoods affected by violent or traumatic incidents. These networks, set up in partnership with the Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, engage local leaders and mobilize local resources to address needs, coordinate community discussions and share information.
Trauma informed approaches
To learn more about trauma informed approaches, take a look at these video resources from our two Speaker Series events on trauma:
- Trauma, violence and its effect on children in our community is available on the Rogers YouTube channel, and
- The documentary, Resilience: The biology of stress and the science of hope, about the Adverse Childhood Experiences study is available at the Ottawa Public Library.
