So what is Trauma-Informed Care(TIC)?
TIC is a treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. TIC emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
Trauma can have a profound and lasting effect on physical and emotional health, especially in children. The earlier we can intervene with proper treatment, the better outcomes our pediatric patients will have as they grow.
In 2017, CrossOver began training all of our employees in Trauma-Informed Care. Through this system we are creating an environment that provides a safe space for our patients from the moment they walk through our doors to the moment they leave.
