Trauma- and Violence-Informed Care Foundations Curriculum

This e-learning education provides practical guidance on how to provide care or services in a trauma- and violence-informed way. We call it a “win-win-win”:

  • your service users, especially those facing the biggest challenges, will be better served
  • you as the care or service provider, staff member, leader, or educator will deliver services or interact with service users in a way that is more effective and acceptable, especially for those who might need extra care, and be more satisfied with your work
  • your organization or practice setting will be better aligned with quality of care goals, and with a social justice approach
The curriculum has 7 sections, with embedded videos, case-based activities, a downloadable Notebook for reflection and links to key take-aways, and interactive quizzes throughout. After completing section 7, successfully completing a brief assessment will provide a Certificate of Completion.
