Safety Before Trust

The California Center of Excellence for Trauma Informed Care is committed to helping trauma-exposed people achieve safety, connection, and empowerment and helping agencies transform practice to work more effectively with clients by better understanding trauma and focusing on safety. The principle of Safety Before Trust is a foundation of this work, particularly in connection with the Center's project to stop trusted advisor abuse, which occurs when a person in a position of trust uses that position to control a patient, client, parishioner, or athlete. The Stop Trusted Advisor abuse project promotes educating the general public, holding professionals to a higher level of responsibility, ensuring that accountability systems do a much better job of policing abuse within their ranks, and protecting those who rely on providers, whether in publicly-funded systems or on the private market. Safety Before Trust means “Because I am safer, I have the ability to trust,” not the other way around.
