Summary: 
Klinic Community Health Centre in Winnipeg developed this 150-page toolkit to provide knowledge to service organizations and providers working with adults who have experienced or been affected by trauma, in order to deliver services that are trauma-informed and to develop trauma-informed relationships that cultivate safety, trust and compassion. While the toolkit does not speak specifically to the trauma experienced by trafficked persons, it offers guidelines for working with people affected by different types of trauma, and it provides organizational check-lists, recommended terminology, alternative and cultural teachings and healing practices, and ways to address vicarious trauma. It includes sections on sexual abuse, the legacy of residential schools, and the experience of immigrants and refugees. Website: http://trauma-informed.ca.
