Taking steps to shift an organization into a Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) model changes our perceptions about the individuals that we work with, both clients and staff. A trauma-informed system of care provides services that allow clients to feel safe, accepted and understood at all levels of agency interaction- without judgment and exchanges that could be potentially retraumatizing, or trigger traumatic reactions. When an organization learns how to provide TIC, they educate the staff about the effects of violence, victimization and trauma on individuals. Their services allow clients to feel safe, be accepted and be understood by everyone who may come in contact with them. Employees also feel safe and supported.
