Creating a Place of Healing and Forgiveness: The Trauma-Informed Care Initiative at the Women's Community Correctional Center of Hawaii

Source: National Center for Trauma-Informed Care

Description: The Trauma-Informed Care Initiative (TICI) is a unique collaboration among the facility administration, staff, and inmates; community non-profits; state and federal agencies; educators and researchers; and volunteers from churches and civic groups. Reducing the use of restraints and isolation has been a focus of the training and activities of TICI, since these interventions are likely to re-traumatize women who are trauma survivors and cause trauma responses in women who had not previously experienced trauma.
