Trauma Informed Practice (TIP)

6 modules


Dr William Davies



The overall aim of Trauma Informed Practice is to ensure that services are delivered in ways that prevent further harm or retraumatisation for those who have already experienced psychological trauma or adversity at any stage in their lives.

Trauma Informed Practice principles are generally applicable, for instance in: general practice, mental health, residential care, police, criminal justice social work, addiction services and education. Different authors quote slightly differing lists and numbers of ‘key TIP principles’ but most include the following:

  • Safety
  • Trust
  • Choice
  • Collaboration
  • Empowerment
  • And more

To help you achieive the aim of trauma informed practice the course covers mainly the following:

  • The definition of a trauma and what effects are commonly experienced post-trauma.
  • The idea that the effects of trauma can persist for a very long time or for ever.
  • What makes for a trauma informed organisation? The APT’s definitive list of factors comparable with those above.
  • Examining additional factors relevant to your own specific situation.
  • How Trauma Informed Practice increases our job satisfaction, motivation and resilience.
  • The questions we need to answer if we want our organisation to be Trauma Informed as well as your own practice.
  • How you can apply the answers to those questions, to the benefit of your organisation.

Very straight forward and easy to apply in different settings. I do wish it went more into specific techniques of intervention.
