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.

There are 6 versions of the ARTIC scale, three for human service organizations and three for education settings. Organizations and schools select the version that is most appropriate for their setting and how they plan to use the ARTIC. All version are included when you purchase the ARTIC.
