Who is Trauma Informed Edmonton?

Trauma Informed Edmonton (TIE) is a network of organizations and helping professionals who have aligned their efforts to deliver effective training and develop/distribute resources on trauma for front-line workers and policymakers.

The overarching goal is to ensure services provided for vulnerable populations in the greater Edmonton area are trauma-informed. We believe a trauma-informed approach will improve the quality and effectiveness of services provided to Indigenous, refugee, immigrant, and high-risk youth populations, as well as military members and first responders suffering from PTSD, victims of domestic violence, and others whose thoughts and behaviours are shaped by trauma.

TIE was created in response to an identified growing need in the community. Creators felt it was necessary to understand the impact of historical trauma on Indigenous people on this land.

We believe that personal and intergenerational trauma is the most salient contributing factor for involvement in the child welfare, justice, and correctional system, as well as an indicator causing homelessness, mental illness and poverty.
