TRUST (Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool)  is a strengths-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming 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 care practices within their organization. TIC-OSAT allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff and display these results within a concise, real-time report along with recommendations for bolstering Trauma-Informed Care practices.

TRUST-S (Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool for Schools) is a strength-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides educational settings with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming more trauma-sensitive and 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-sensitive educational practices.  The TRUST-S allows schools and districts to view aggregated survey results from their administration and staff.  These results are displayed within a concise, real-time report that offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-sensitive practices.  This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking, as well as repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify next steps.
