The following two resources are organizational assessments, which represent a key strategy in developing or re-evaluating trauma-informed services. The first assessment, presented by the University of South Florida, College of Behavioral and Community Sciences (2012), is designed for staff or key stakeholders. The second assessment comes from the Trauma-Informed Organizational Toolkit for Homeless Services (Guarino, Soares, Konnath, Clervil & Bassuk, 2009) and is a consumer version. There are several other assessment tools available, including Fallot and Harris’s Creating Cultures of Trauma-Informed Care (CCTIC): A Self Assessment and Planning Protocol (2009).
