Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is a model for providing agency wide services that acknowledge the likelihood that those seeking services have experienced some form of trauma during their lifetime.
Research on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) demonstrates that trauma is a risk factor to the development of many problems such as various psychiatric disorders, addictions, physical health ailments, behavioral disorders, suicidal behavior, personality disorders and violent behavior.
The methods employed by professionals can play a critical role in their clients' recovery. SAMSHA outlines the following three trauma-informed care competencies for professionals to integrate into practice.
