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.

Here at RC Central, we are most proud of RC’s sustainability within agencies. We believe trauma-informed culture change is hard. Sustaining it can be harder. Therefore, agencies have to keep working at it FOR YEARS.

We recently did some calculations. Here’s what we found:

  1. As of July 2014, 45 agencies/programs adopted RC. 42 of those 45 are still open.
  2. Of those 42 agencies, 32 agencies (76%)  still use RC.
  3. Of those 32 agencies…
    • 26 agencies have been using RC for 3 years or more (81%)
    • 12 agencies have been using RC for 7 years or more (38%)
    • 5 agencies using RC for 9 years or more (16%)

Many training programs come and go in the life of an agency. RC often stays and gets permanently woven into the fabric of the system.
