New TIP Addresses Trauma and Behavioral Health Services
People who have experienced trauma—especially chronic or repeated trauma—are at an elevated risk for substance use disorders, mental illness, and physical disorders and conditions. Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 57, Trauma-Informed Care in Behavioral Health Services, provides evidence-based and best practice information for behavioral health practitioners and administrators working with people who have experienced trauma. Using key trauma-informed principles, this TIP addresses trauma-related prevention, screening, assessment, intervention, and treatment issues and strategies. It includes key information to help practitioners and administrators become trauma aware and informed, and implement science-informed intervention strategies across settings and modalities in behavioral health services.
