Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is an overarching structure and treatment attitude that emphasizes understanding, compassion, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma Informed Care also looks at physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both clients and providers, and provides tools to empower folks on the pathway to stability.

Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing that people have many different traumatic experiences which often intersect in their lives.  Well-meaning services providers can often re-traumatize clients who need understanding, support, and individually-conscious care."
