Integrated health is coordinated care which is comprehensive and seamless care that is a worldwide trend in health
care reforms. In this book we will discuss the importance of trauma informed care with all systems who touch the
lives of trauma-exposed children and families. We will reflect how integrated health occurs based on the performance
practice of primary care and behavioral health integration (PCBHI) working as a patient centered model home. The
book will also discuss the impact of trauma from physical, mental, emotional and spiritual contexts.
Regardless of how traumatic events have impacted a patient’s life there is a clear path to healing and managing
medical and psychological concerns. This takes place with an appropriate assessments and a “whole” treatment plan
for the trauma-exposed patient from a body, mind, and spirit integrated forms of care provision.
