Trauma-Informed Care Across the Intercepts

Past Event
March 19, 2020, 2:00pm , Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) in partnership with the Stepping Up initiative.

People with behavioral needs, including a history of trauma, are overrepresented in the criminal justice system and face the risk of re-traumatization as they cycle through different points of the system. As criminal justice and behavioral health professionals encounter high rates of trauma while performing their job duties, agencies are exploring practices to improve responses by increasing awareness of trauma-informed care (TIC). This webinar gives an overview of the core principles of TIC, provides best practices for using it at each intercept point within the Sequential Intercept Model, and reviews research which supports the use of TIC practices for obtaining better outcomes among people in the criminal justice system who have behavioral health needs.
