Foundations of Trauma Informed Care

1. Asynchronous Foundations of TIC (AKA Self-Led Online Course)

This platform consists of eight short videos which cover the foundational topics of trauma informed care. It includes access to a 15-page workbook with thought-provoking questions to aid in the reflection and application of the information. Viewers are encouraged to choose their own adventure with this resource. Follow along independently or engage a larger group and use the workbook questions to facilitate dialogue.

In this format, the foundational material is offered as a series. It is facilitated online with two trainers and is offered in four two-hour online sessions, totaling 8 hours of learning. All offerings are limited to 40 participants to allow for more engaged learning. Discussion prompts and breakout sessions are built in, with participation highly encouraged. Participants are expected to attend all sessions.

Training of Trainers

For individuals and organizations wanting to offer trauma informed care training in their communities and/or organization, joining a Training of Trainers can increase confidence and preparation.

Our Training of Trainers consists of four days of in-person learning and practicing of TIO’s Foundational material. Participants are provided with a Trainer’s Manual that offers potential lesson layouts, sample scripts, and supportive materials. Lessons are tailored to adult learning styles and participants are provided with opportunities to train amongst their cohort.

We have very limited capacity to offer our Training of Trainers (ToT) each year and spaces can fill quickly. If you have signed up on our previous ToT waitlist, we will reach out to you to see if you are still interested. Check our events calendar for current offerings.

Culturally Specific Adaptation

Attributes include co-creating a safer affinity space, allowing for decreased focus on performance based, code switching, and centering White participant learning to support a potential decrease in racism and oppression.

Spanish Cultural Adaptation

Attributes include going beyond a translation, considering key aspects involved in learning, tailoring data, design and content to the community. Guest speakers bring depth and new perspectives.

Advanced Courses

We offer a variety of courses and events that help advance the practice of trauma-informed practice beyond the basics at various times of year. Check our events calendar for current offerings.
