Communities of Practice

Trauma-Informed Systems (TIS)


Using implementation science for county and regional system change

We believe that this transformation—from systems that induce trauma to systems that can sustain healing practices and wellness—occurs along a continuum from Trauma Organized (systems so impacted by organizational stress and trauma that they present symptoms similar to those of individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder) to Healing Organizations and Systems of Care.

This is an organizational change model aimed to create contexts that nurture and sustain trauma-informed practices and to create organizations, agencies and schools that reduce trauma.

To connect with this work, please contact Jen Leland.
