Individuals with experiences of trauma are found in multiple service sectors, not just in behavioral healthcare settings. Trauma is widespread, harmful, and a costly public health problem. Trauma has no boundaries with regard to age, gender, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, geography, or sexual orientation. It is an almost universal experience of people with mental disorders and substance use disorders. The need to address trauma is increasingly viewed as an important component of effective behavioral health service delivery.

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is becoming the expectation in all Ohio service settings. Trauma occurs as a result of violence, abuse, neglect, loss, disaster, war, and other emotionally harmful experiences. A multi-pronged, multi-agency public health approach inclusive of public education and awareness, prevention and early identification, and effective trauma-specific assessment and treatment is underway in Ohio.

This workshop will provide the audience with consideration and tools for screening and assessing people for trauma related symptoms.  Implications for treatment planning will be addressed.  Small and large group discussion will help organizations and individuals evaluate current clinical practices for responding to individuals seeking services and how they are guided by the 6 principles.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to ...

  • List the 6 core TIC principles.
  • Identify screening tools and methods, assessment components and process.
  • Application of 6 TIC principles to screening and assessment.
  • Describe Ohio's regional initiative and available resources
