Information Collection Request Title: Evaluation of the National Training on Trauma-Informed Care (TIC).

Abstract: The HHS OWH is requesting OMB approval to conduct a new, one time outcome evaluation of the National Training Initiative on Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) for Community-Based Providers from Diverse Service Systems training curriculum. Policymakers and providers in many service sectors recognize the central role of trauma in causing or complicating physical and behavioral health conditions and the critical need for trauma-informed care (TIC) systems. The proposed evaluation will capture both knowledge gained and implementation impact achieved as a result of the TIC training and TA. Analyses and findings will be used to further refine the TIC curriculum and training approach, and can help inform OWH and HHS in future policymaking efforts. Information collected will also help researchers and practitioners better understand the impact of adopting a trauma-informed approach on and the quality of care provided by community-based providers.

Likely Respondents:

Site Visits

Site visits are designed to capture both the knowledge gained by training participants and the implementation impact achieved in their organizations as a result of the OWH TIC training and technical assistance. Interviewees will be drawn from two general categories, Leadership (includes staff in roles such as Director of Agency, CEO, and/or Executive Director) and Line/Other Frontline Staff (to include clinicians, program director/manager, direct program/service staff, and other frontline staff). While these agency/organization representatives will ideally have participated in the training, staff turnover or unavailability may result in the inclusion of leadership or line staff who did not participate in the training.

Online Survey

The goal of the online survey is to assess the impact of the training on participants' skills acquired in, knowledge about, and values and beliefs surrounding trauma-informed care. All participants (leadership and line/other frontline staff) who have been trained will constitute the online survey target population.
