Assistance Needed: Measuring Staff Beliefs about Trauma-informed Care


We’re glad to help our friend Dr. Steve Brown at the Traumatic Stress Institute of Klingberg Family Centers in his effort to develop a research instrument on staff beliefs about trauma-informed care (TIC). Here’s his email. Please help add to the field’s body of knowledge about TIC.

Dear Colleagues,

At this time, there are no reliable and valid measures of trauma-informed care. For this reason, we are working on an instrument to measure staff beliefs related to TIC. When finished, this could be used to measure such things as the extent to which a school or agency is trauma-informed or the outcome of trauma-informed change interventions.

But we need your help. We need as many health and education professionals as possible to participate in a brief online survey. The online survey takes 20-30 minutes and has been approved by the Tulane University Institutional Review Board. All participants who complete the online survey will have the option to enter their name into a raffle. After the study is over, four participants will be randomly selected to win a $25 giftcard to Barnes & Noble.

If you are interested in participating, please click on the appropriate link below.

If you work in HEALTH CARE:

If you work in EDUCATION:

Please also distribute to other listservs or to health care and education providers in your agencies.

Thanks in advance for your help.
