Trauma-Informed Care: Foundations (TIC 101)

Length: Eight hours

(two 4-hour workshops, unless otherwise requested)

Delivery: Live in-person or live virtual

This course provides a comprehensive overview of foundational Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) principles and practices, which support a safe and brave workplace, ultimately improving outcomes for individuals and communities.  In the course, we explore different types of trauma and the science behind how trauma impacts our brain, body and behavior. 

We highlight how many current practices of workplaces unintentionally re-traumatize individuals they are meant to help – especially those pushed to the margins of our society – and create vicarious trauma for the staff who work tirelessly to support them. Throughout, we provide ample time and space for discussions around how trauma-informed principles can be practiced in your workplace to reduce trauma and promote healing and recovery.
