The acquisition of knowledge (action #3 in Foundational Knowledge) is how you will know if training has been effective. However, for funding and other planning purposes, you might be interested to understand the amount and type of training staff have attended. The following are training areas that might be informative: the amount of face-to-face training staff have had on the topics of trauma and TIC, the amount of exposure through webinars, books, and other sources they have had on the topics of trauma and TIC, and the recency of training (e.g. how long it has been since they last attended a TIC related training).
In addition to tracking foundational training, it might also be helpful to keep track of the other TIC related trainings attended by staff. For example, non-violent communication, de-escalation, customer service, collaborative problem solving, and motivational interviewing are all trainings that are relevant to TIC. By tracking related trainings, this gives the organization a way to monitor progress and connect dots for staff so that TIC doesn’t feel like a new or different thing. It’s a way for staff to think about how all of this fits together.
