Becoming trauma informed

Understanding and implementing trauma informed approaches in schools, NHS and community services across the age spectrum can help to resolve health, emotional and relationship problems, supporting children and adults to engage with help offered and go on to become more than passive recipients of education and healthcare.

A trauma informed approach also benefits staff by giving them a new understanding of their work, along with renewed motivation and purpose, and the tools to avoid burnout.  

TIC CIC offers a range of services to help your organisation become more trauma informed, whether you’re at the start of your journey or looking to review and build on your progress.

People use different ways to survive, adapt to and cope with trauma and its impact, and some of these can seem confusing or self defeating unless viewed as adaptive coping responses to overwhelming threat and its consequences
