Trauma-Informed Organizational Capacity Scale

How trauma-informed is your organization?

AIR’s Trauma-Informed Organizational Capacity Scale (TIC Scale)* helps you answer this question. Our TIC Scale is the first psychometrically validated instrument to gauge the extent to which health and human service organizations provide trauma-informed care.

Your organizations can use this instrument to

  • assess current capacity to provide trauma-informed care,
  • identify areas for improvement, and
  • monitor changes in practice over time.
