Training and resources to help organizations implement the trauma-informed care framework.
The experience of trauma has widespread impact on the lives of those we serve, leading to or exacerbating mental illnesses, substance use, and physical health conditions. In a truly integrated whole health system of care, effectively treating behavioral and physical health conditions must involve addressing the impact of trauma.
If you’re working towards becoming a trauma-informed organization (or just want to learn more about trauma-informed care), this resource hub will help you understand the basics of trauma, the TIC framework, and how to care for your staff.
Trauma-informed care (TIC) has become a widely recognized paradigm for creating safe spaces for individuals who have experienced trauma and reducing the likelihood that accessing services would cause re-traumatization. The impact of TIC on individuals and organizations is powerful, and this approach has shown to be effective in reducing trauma-related symptoms.

The following resources will give you a better understanding of what trauma is and how it can present itself in various populations.
