From National Council for Behavioral Health, September 2020
Basics of Trauma and the TIC Framework
Current events like the coronavirus pandemic, public images of police brutality and an economic downturn have led to an increase in long-lasting physical and emotional stress in people across the world. These traumatic experiences have led to or exacerbated mental illnesses, substance use and physical health conditions.
Trauma-informed care (TIC) has become a widely recognized paradigm for creating safe spaces for individuals who have experienced trauma and reducing the likelihood that accessing services would cause re-traumatization. But what exactly is trauma and the trauma-informed care framework?
