Course Description:

Offers a foundation of information regarding implementation of Trauma-Informed Care into systems and organizations. Staff at all levels within an organization can benefit from this presentation. When an organization learns how to provide Trauma-Informed Care (TIC), they  educate their staff about the effects of violence, victimization and trauma on individuals. The organization also educates its staff about the effects trauma can have on the employees working with them. This educational process creates the foundation to achieve an organizational understanding of how to design services to support trauma survivors and how to support staff. Every aspect of the agency or organization services from how the receptionist handles phone calls, to how the board of directors and executive staff make service policy decisions needs to be viewed through a trauma- informed lens. Trauma-Informed Care is not specifically designed to treat symptoms related to trauma, but to ensure that staff are informed about and sensitive to the trauma-related issues presented by individuals, and that the organization has reviewed its operations, policies and procedures to ensure all services are provided in a Trauma- Informed model. Implementing a Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) model creates a supportive and therapeutic environment for individuals exposed to trauma and also for staff. This includes learning about an individual’s past and current history of abuse and psychological trauma.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize why trauma must be addressed;

  • Identify and understand each component of a Trauma-Informed Care model;

  • Define the steps needed to move forward in transforming the service environment into a Trauma-Informed Care model.
