Becoming a Trauma Informed Organization to Meet the Needs of Increasingly Complex Clients in Child Welfare

As more children receive community-based services, everyone agrees that the typical client in child welfare agencies has grown exponentially more acute and complex. Old models are not working and provider agencies are scrambling to manage and treat the extreme behaviors of youth in their care. 

Recognizing this fact, more and more states are mandating that child welfare agencies become trauma-informed. The state of California, for example, passed statewide legislation requiring that state-funded residential and foster care agencies implement trauma-informed care (TIC). 

But, what does that really mean? Where do you start? And how do you move the needle toward being a trauma-informed child welfare agency? 
Whether you are just now hearing about TIC, have already sent staff to a mix of trainings, or have started the challenging process of TIC implementation, this webinar is for you. 

Participants will leave this webinar understanding: 
• What it REALLY means to be a trauma-informed organization 
• The benefits of a whole-system change process rather than a piecemeal approach to change 
• The stages of implementation and how to sustain hard-won progress over time 
• The importance of concrete implementation tools and measures to evaluate progress 
• The features and benefits of the Traumatic Stress Institute’s Whole System Change Model
