Introducing the Trauma-Informed Practice (TIP) Scales for DV Programs

Event Date
Tuesday, November 28, 2017, 02:00PM

Over the past 15 years, domestic violence (DV) and sexual assault (SA) programs have worked tirelessly to bring a trauma-informed approach to their work. This, in turn, has generated a need for tools that programs can use to assess the effectiveness of their efforts. In this webinar, presenters will describe the development of a new tool to assess trauma-informed practice that DV and SA programs can use to evaluate and improve their work. The Trauma Informed Practice (TIP) Scales measure the degree to which programs engage in trauma-informed practices from the perspective of program participants. The Scales assess six domains of trauma-informed practice, including Environment of Agency and Mutual Respect, Access to Information on Trauma, Opportunities for Connection, and Emphasis on Strengths, Cultural Responsiveness, and Inclusivity, and Support for Parenting. The webinar will also present new research to demonstrate the relationship between these aspects of practice and increased safety-related empowerment among survivors.
