​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​A tra​u​ma-informed approach (TIA) defines the way that an organization delivers its services. It is an approach that focuses on the strengths (not the problems) of the persons they serve. An organization that uses TIA has the following characteristics:
  • It is ​ground​ed in an understanding of trauma and is responsive to the impact of trauma on people's lives.
  • It emphasizes physical, p​sychological, and emotional SAFETY for both students & staff. Both the staff who provide services and the students who engage those services must both feel safe for work.
  • Finally, it creates opportunities for student survivors of trauma to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.​
