Relationship hygiene is another way we can engage in trauma informed practices. The trauma-informed practice of relationship hygiene focuses on you and your relationship partners. Relationship hygiene cuts across the personal and the professional aspects of life. We engage in relationship hygiene when we prioritize relationships that are safe, stable, nurturing, and reliable.
