About the Traumatic Stress Institute

The Traumatic Stress Institute’s current mission is to foster the transformation of organizations and service systems to trauma-informed care (TIC) through delivery of whole-system consultation, professional training, coaching, and research. An international leader in the TIC movement, TSI currently supports over 85 organizations across North America to embed TIC in their organizational culture. It also has done pioneering work in the area of TIC measurement by developing the ARTIC Scale, the most widely used psychometric measure of TIC currently available. TSI was founded in 1986 and was responsible for seminal theory building in the field of traumatic stress including coining the term and developing the concept of vicarious traumatization.

TSI is a close-knit, largely virtual team with some staff living in locations outside of Connecticut. We have a highly supportive work environment that values workplace flexibility, collegiality, collaboration, professional growth, work-life balance, and self-care.

TSI is working to embody anti-racism, putting equity and justice at the center of our work. We want our team to better reflect the diversity of the organizations we serve. Therefore, we especially encourage applicants that identify as Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQ, a person with a disability, or a person from an underrepresented group.
