Trauma- and Violence-Informed Care Workshop

For more education on TVIC, the Trauma- and Violence-Informed Care Curriculum is now available. This e-learning education is a self-directed, free curriculum that gives practical guidance on how to provide care in a trauma- and violence-informed way. Learn more and register here.

Team members from EQUIP Primary Care have delivered workshops for health and social service providers about trauma, violence and how to integrate TVIC into practice. We have made one such workshop available by video, along with some downloadable workshop materials.

If you are interested in learning more or implementing TVIC — into your own practices, or as an organization — these materials may be helpful. You can watch the videos and work through the other materials on your own. Or you may wish to gather your colleagues to watch and work through these as an organization.
