The Traumatic Stress Institute fosters the transformation of organizations and service systems to trauma-informed care (TIC) through the delivery of whole-system consultation, professional training, coaching, and research.

The potential uses of the ARTIC in organizations to guide data-driven decision-making are many. Some examples include schools and organizations using the ARTIC to:

  • assess readiness for, and barriers to, TIC implementation;
  • assess as a snapshot in time of how a TIC initiative is doing;
  • comparing staff attitudes at a variety of sites in a large TIC initiative;
  • obtain a baseline measure to assess change over time as a result of TIC interventions;
  • monitor the backslide of TIC in schools and organizations that commonly occurs;
  • serve as an “assessment-as-intervention” tool in order to resist the backslide of TIC;
  • determine which staff need additional training and supervision related to TIC.
