A Trauma Informed Central Coast

Broadcast date: 2/4/16

Trauma Informed Care (TIC), is a treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. 

TIC can be implemented in any type of service setting or organization, and many disciplines have already created trauma-informed transformation in their programming and service delivery, including social service organizations, behavioral and mental health programs, criminal justice agencies, as well as others. Learn how the trauma-informed approach and trauma-specific interventions can be used to address trauma’s consequences and to facilitate healing.

Join host Kris Kington Barker as she speaks with Gabriela Grant, Executive Director of California Center of Excellence for Trauma Informed Care, Lisa Fraser, Executive Director of the Center for Family Strengthening (CFS), and Sandra Miscovich, Director of Maternal & Child Health with the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department as they discuss how public and private agencies can become trained to incorporate TIC guidelines, policies, and evidence-based strategies into their organizational structure, culture and practice to better assist the community.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
