The Traumatic Stress Institute fosters the transformation of organizations and service systems to trauma-informed care (TIC) through the delivery of whole-system consultation, professional training, coaching, and research.

COVID-19 Hardship Discount on all Online ARTIC Purchases

May 7, 2020 / by John Engel, MA

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, school systems, human service agencies, behavioral health programs, medical institutions, foster care agencies, juvenile justice programs, and many others are working to sustain trauma-informed care--now more than ever.

At the same time, organizations are experiencing unexpected and unprecedented financial challenges.In response, the Traumatic Stress Institute is offering relief to organizations that would like to proceed with TIC measurement--now or in the near future--by offering a 30% discount on all Online ARTIC purchases for a limited time.

While many organizations are fully focused on responding to COVID-19 challenges, others may see the current situation as an opportunity to use the Online ARTIC to:

  • Collect baseline data of staff attitudes toward trauma-informed care
  • Meet funding or grant timelines
  • Prepare for evaluating a TIC initiative scheduled to begin after the crisis has subsided

Whatever the reason, organizations can experience significant savings by purchasing the Online ARTIC now and then collecting data later.  

TSI is committed to advancing TIC practice and measurement, especially in challenging times.
