TRUST

Formerly known as the TIC-OSAT, the Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool (TRUST) is a strength-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations of all types and sizes with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming more trauma- informed.  The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-informed practices.  The TRUST allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff.  These results are displayed within a concise, real-time report that offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-informed practices.  This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking, as well as repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify next steps.

<p paraeid="{68049265-06ae-47e9-8c58-23a08fe013a5}{162}" paraid="941677269">We like to say, "We don't get it right every day but we are willing to keep trying!" PCANY has been working to walk the walk for the past four years when it comes to TI practice. For us, this means being willing to look internally at how we are present daily for our own staff to ensure that what we do internally aligns with what we do externally with our partners. This has led us to think deeply and reflectively about the culture we want to nurture and grow. So much of our work is about the <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/infographics/6_principles_trauma_info.htm" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">6 Principles of TI Practice</a> and the <a href="https://cssp.org/our-work/projects/protective-factors-framework/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Protective Factors Framework </a>and we were curious and excited to see if we could embrace these more completely into our organizational life.</p>
