Critical Thinking

This section is intended to allow us to integrate the training content into the “lived experiences” of families. Each of these critical thinking questions addresses one or more of the people in the Carlson, Choi, or Johnson families, and examines an aspect of their lives.

Take time to think about your responses to each of these questions, and think about your answers from multiple stakeholders’ points of view. We encourage you to go back and review sections of the curriculum, re-read the lived experiences of each family member you met in this training, and engage in dialogue with community partners and co-workers.

  1. What physical signs and behaviors are Anna and Brian exhibiting of their experience of abuse in the home?

  2. What would a trauma-informed response look like to support Anna and Brian?

  3. How is LaTanya's experience with the women's group trauma-informed? How might her experience support her path to safety?
