What we know... Many mental health and addiction treatment agencies, inpatient facilities, county boards of developmental disabilities, child-serving agencies and other community partners, have already provided training and consultation in trauma informed practice Many clinicians are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization training (EMDR); Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and other treatment modalities Ohio has embarked on the development of a universal trauma screening tool for youth in the juvenile justice system 4
Ohio’s Trauma Informed (TIC) Care Initiative Summer of 2013, interagency workgroup of leaders from Ohio MHAS and Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has been meeting to formulate plans to expand TIC across the state A portion of the “Strong Families, Safe Communities” project funded by the Governor’s Office and additional block grant dollars have been earmarked for this purpose Outside consultants from National Center for Trauma Informed Care (NTIC) and Case Western Reserve University’s Center for Innovative Practices have also consulted formally Additional conversations and advice from Ohio Hospital Association, Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities, Ohio Council, Public Childrens Services Association of Ohio, Ohio Association of Child Caring Agencies and many others 5
