In Trauma-Informed Care, social safety means “feeling safe with other people”. This course provides a foundation for thinking about social safety in the context of community acupuncture, particularly how approaches such as Trauma-Informed Care and Harm Reduction can help create a safer clinical environment. In community acupuncture, safety represents an active, collective, creative and imperfect enterprise, involving specific tasks and tools, to help patients feel as physically, psychologically, and socially safe as possible.
