Interpersonal Violence and HIV: The Importance of Trauma-Informed, Universal Responses


Patricia Miller*

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how professional service providers must understand the current traumainformed knowledge and contemporary understanding of the impact of interpersonal violence in the lives of persons living with HIV. If they do, there will be less impact and more healing regarding trauma, its trans-generational impact and increased quality of life for those living with HIV. In addition, a trauma-informed lens invites there to be a development of universal best practice, consisting of protocol and strategies that ask specific questions regarding what types of abuse or neglect people have experienced and when. This paper offers a theoretical framework, while matching relationship-focused questions as key to building new health prevention strategies that will reduce risk factors and increase the protective factors, when addressing this social epidemic called interpersonal violence, its impact and relationship, with the co-morbid health issue of HIV.
