Trauma-informed care (TIC) is an approach for organizations and individuals to adopt that emerged from an understanding of the prevalence and pervasive impact of trauma across the human experience. Grounded in principles of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment, TIC is focused on reducing further risk of harm to people who have experienced trauma and promoting their healing and growth.
This TIC training, available through Public Health & YOU, provides:
- a foundational curriculum (4 hours) focused on understanding trauma and the basics of TIC;
- specialized modules (2 hours each) to explore and apply TIC to youth, Veterans, and people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD).
