Trauma-Informed Care Across the Intercepts

Event Dates

People with behavioral needs, including a history of trauma, are overrepresented in the criminal justice system and face the risk of re-traumatization as they cycle through different points of the system. As criminal justice and behavioral health professionals encounter high rates of trauma while performing their job duties, agencies are exploring practices to improve responses by increasing awareness of trauma-informed care (TIC).

This webinar will give an overview of the core principles of TIC, provide best practices for using it at each intercept point within the Sequential Intercept Model, and review research which supports the use of TIC practices for obtaining better outcomes among people in the criminal justice system who have behavioral health needs.

Webinar panelists:

  • Lisa Callahan, senior research associate, Policy Research Associates
  • Ethan Kelly, senior policy analyst, the CSG Justice Center
  • Sarah Wurzburg, program director behavioral health, the CSG Justice Center
