No one is immune to trauma and its effects. In fact, trauma is one of the most profound public health crises in our country and the most powerful predictor of many psychological and medical conditions. Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) emerged out of this awareness of just how wide-spread, damaging, and (often) silent trauma and its effects can be. This training offers participants an interactive learning experience where they will learn about trauma and its effects (from individual to community), as well as will learn about ways that TIC addresses the need for human services organizations and systems to better understand, recognize, and respond to the effects of all types of trauma.


  • Define and describe the continuum of stress and trauma, as well as recognize sources of trauma.
  • Describe the impact and consequences of traumatic experiences (biological, emotional, cognitive, and social) for individuals, families, and communities.
  • Describe Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) and rationale for its use
  • Identify the TIC core principles and related practices
  • Describe ways these core principles could be applied in various human-service settings across the system, including the setting(s)/organization(s) in which you work(ed)
  • Articulate what can be done to promote a trauma-informed culture and identify potential challenges to the implementation of TIC.
