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 ARTIC stands for Attitudes Related to Trauma-Informed Care. The ARTIC Scale is one of the first psychometrically valid measure of trauma-informed care (TIC) to be published in the literature. It measures professional and paraprofessional attitudes favorable or unfavorable toward TIC. There are 3 versions of the ARTIC for human services settings (45 item, 35 item, 10 item short form) and 3 parallel versions for education settings. The ARTIC has five core subscales and two supplementary subscales. The longest version, the ARTIC-45, can be completed in 15 – 20 minutes.
