National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Healthhttp://www.nationalcenterdvtraumamh.org/publications-products/resources-on-trauma/

The mission of the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health is to develop and promote accessible, culturally relevant, and trauma-informed responses to domestic violence and other lifetime trauma so that survivors and their children can access the resources that are essential to their safety and well-being. Our work is survivor defined and rooted in principles of social justice.

The Administration for Children and Families, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations, the Administration for Community Living, the Offices of the Assistant Secretary for Health and the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at HHS have worked together to develop this Guide to Trauma-Informed Human Services.

Kim White

Kim White joined the faculty of Marshall University’s Social Work Department MSW program in August 2016 after ten years working in the field of social work at varying levels of practice.  Kim is a veteran of the U.S. Navy.  After military service, she earned her MSW from the University of Kansas in 2005.  In 2016, she was named West Virginia Social Worker of the Year.  She served  6- years on the National Association of Social Workers WV Chapter board of directors, the last 2 years as president of the 500- member association.  In December, Kim will graduate from Marshall University with a doctorate in Education.

Kim’s social work expertise derives from a decade of practice working with diverse populations including children, veterans, university students, and inmates in settings such as prisons, in-patient hospitals, and on campus.  A core component of Kim’s social work practice is engagement with clients using evidenced-based interventions to address mental and behavioral health conditions.  Kim uses mindfulness and meditation to develop client self-awareness and the relationship to the self, and to enhance perception of the mind-body connection.  The strengths-perspective, motivational interviewing, the recovery model,  and trauma-informed care are her go-to frameworks for work with clients.
