Imagine a world where we interact with every life we meet as if we knew their story, of hardship and trial and engaged with them from that knowledge…

WELCOME TO THE TRAUMA INFORMED APPROACH

Trauma Informed Approach (TIA)

Trauma-informed approach acknowledges the hardships that all human beings experience and rather than place shame on those experiences, it reveals and lifts the resiliency that they create.

Trauma-informed approach is the “how” in the what we do, it is the culture and the vibe of ensuring spaces that meet people where they are in context of their life experiences and assumes the best.

A trauma-informed approach gives all of us working with individuals an acknowledgment of the impacts of trauma on those around us and the tools to recognize the signs of trauma.

“A program, organization, or system that is trauma-informed realizes the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for recovery; recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system; and responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices, and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.”

TIA Training

En Route, LLC will be coordinating and delivering Trauma Informed Approach (TIA) training and coaching activities across Washington for those with a direct connection to individuals interested or receiving behavioral health services, their supervisors, agency leadership and the broader community. The trainings will occur in all ten behavioral health regions through partnership with systems, local community organizations, schools, and those interested in hosting TIA events.

Regional trainings are free of charge and funded by the Health Care Authority/Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR) who allocated funds to support and build on the work organizations and agencies throughout Washington are already doing to infuse the Trauma Informed Approach into prevention, healing, well-being, and recovery work with the individuals we serve.

HCA/DBHR granted 31 community organizations transformation enhancement grants to expand on trauma-informed work they were already doing and begin the work where there was desire. The goal of this funding is to help these organizations collaborate with other community organizations to expand TIA statewide.
