Systemic Trauma and Relational (STAR) Health Lab



This lab has three primary aims:

  1. Identify important overlaps between trauma and overall health and wellbeing to inform future research, clinical practice, and trauma-informed systems.
  2. Explore the bidirectional impact of relationships and traumatic stress.
  3. Provide consultation and education to the community to train and support trauma-informed professionals and to strengthen and support organizations and their processes.
