TRUST

Formerly known as the TIC-OSAT, the Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool (TRUST) is a strength-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations of all types and sizes with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming more trauma- informed.  The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-informed practices.  The TRUST allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff.  These results are displayed within a concise, real-time report that offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-informed practices.  This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking, as well as repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify next steps.
