What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Trauma is common, widespread, and expensive. Traumatic events and chronic exposure to stress and adversity, particularly during developmental periods, can cause lasting harm and contribute to our nations pressing health crises and other social problems. Chronic stress and overwhelming adversity have profound effects on the brain, nervous system, and immune system that affect a persons wellbeing, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. While the roots of traumas vary, the potentially harmful effects they have on an individuals, familys, and communitys health and wellbeingboth immediately and in the futureare shared broadly. This detrimental impact extends to our entire society, all too often creating a ripple effect across generations. Trauma impacts every system within a community, placing an extraordinary burden on our under-resourced services including health care, education, law enforcement, child welfare, housing, small businesses, and workforce development.

CTIPP CAN

Our CTIPP Community Advocacy Network (CAN) calls are on the third Wednesday of every month from 2-3:30pm ET/11am-12:30pm PT. These are educational in nature and meant to connect and enlighten advocates around the country. Each call features a Hill update from CTIPP and presentation(s) from different presenters on various topics related to trauma-informed, resilience-focused, and healing-centered work.

Since our earliest days, The Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice has always produced resources for use by individuals and coalitions/organizations who are a part of the grassroots network working to foster learning and incorporation of new ways of thinking to integrate and operationalize trauma-informed care into systems, policies, and practices. We named our resource development initiative Ideas Lab to reflect our vision of it as a platform for innovation; research; and the development of tools, resources, and other educational opportunities that are needed to propel the collective work of the trauma-informed movement forward. We believe that advocacy and cross-sector coalitions are necessart next-steps and long-term strategies to combat trauma. As more resources to support our network and conduct research build our capacity, we will be able to co-create movement growth through strengthening connections that build the movement across multiple dimensions of society.

Population(s) Served

Named after CTIPPs late co-founder, Dan Press, a stalwart believer in the power of coalitions to implement change, PressOn brings cross-sector, trauma-informed coalitions together at the community, regional, and state levels under a national umbrella for the invaluable purposes of mobilization (including activism and advocacy), networking and connection, and resource-sharing. As a collaboration between the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice, the National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives (NPSC), and The Change Campaign, PressOn aims to be a bedrock for the trauma-informed movement that provides diverse support to local coalitions working across sectors to drive community-led, trauma-informed, prevention-oriented, resilience-focused, and healing-centered approaches to their communities most complex challenges and a scalable infrastructure to the trauma-informed movement.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CTIPP focuses on the root causes of our nation's most pressing challenges through open and collaborative engagement across sectors and systems.

We embrace an anti-racist, public health framework by addressing the injustices that cause poor health and supporting the integration of promotion, prevention, resilience-building, and healing activities. We recognize the importance of historical and intergenerational inequities that impact health across the lifespan as well as the health and welfare of families.

We know that people are fundamentally resilient and we prioritize actions and policies that support and build on natural strengths and disrupt practices and policies that perpetuate harm. We believe that trauma-informed approaches address social and economic justice as well as healing.

We are also committed to ensuring voice and choice for everyone, especially those that have been marginalized, discriminated against, and excluded from opportunities that promote health and well-being.

CTIPP works to activate, advocate, and educate as we work with dedicated folks across the country and around the world to build the movement to prevent trauma and foster transformational resilience.

CTIPP has three main programmatic areas to achieve our mission: PressOn, Ideas Lab, and CTIPP CAN.

The goals of PressOn are to:
Build a powerful, unified connection between local coalitions and policymakers to drive investments in community-led, trauma-informed coalitions and initiatives;
Develop statewide trauma-informed coalitions and prepare them to engage in policy and advocacy, and connect with folks doing work in the grassroots across the state;
Provide a platform for local and statewide coalitions to share emerging and promising practices;
Collect data demonstrating the power of trauma-informed programs that support the collective action of local, statewide, and national coalitions;
Create and disseminate resources and referrals for community-based organizations and agencies to organize their own local coalitions;
Offer introductory technical assistance and training to local coalitions to support the creation and ongoing development of their work; and
Create an infrastructure that can ultimately support sustainable and scalable funding that reaches groups at the community and state levels to build capacity for this work.

Through Ideas Lab, we strive to:

Support the library of evidence-supported materials and research on the benefits of trauma-informed approaches to implementing strategies across sectors;
Create new resources that rapidly respond to the emerging needs of and are informed by promising information from the trauma-informed movement; and
Educate activists and advocates on frameworks that produce health equity and support local coalition building.

Through CTIPP CAN, we strive to:

Increase the number of participants taking part in our CTIPP CAN calls centering around engagement and advocacy in support of federal, local, statewide, and tribal funding for trauma-informed, community-level initiatives.
Expand our network by recruiting those currently living in underrepresented states within CTIPPs membership to join our call to action around addressing traumas root causes at the federal level.
Engage and educate our network of advocates on systemic approaches to addressing trauma at the federal level. We will achieve this through specific tactics such as our sign-on letter, CTIPP CAN calls, call-to-action emails, and direct appeals from community leaders.
Amplify innovative projects addressing trauma at the community and systems levels to increase public and policymaker awareness of what is possible and where federal funding can help scale these approaches nationally.
Prepare our network of practitioners and nonprofit partners for success in receiving and leveraging federal funds once they are available by creating resources such as webinars, toolkits, and blog posts. Our goal is to set up our partners for success in obtaining and maximizing the impact of funds to treat trauma on the community level as soon as our advocacy to increase federal support for trauma-informed practices is realized.

Founded in 2015, the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice was created to organize the advocacy voice for the movement to educate elected officials and create a comprehensive vision for what a truly trauma-informed society looks like. Our mission is to create a healthy, just, resilient, and trauma-informed society where all individuals, families, and communities have the social, political, cultural, economic, and spiritual opportunities and support necessary to thrive. Grounded in NEAR sciencea body of research that includes Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACEs, and Resilienceour work informs a path forward in preventing and mitigating the effects of trauma on society through policies and practices at all levels to promote holistic wellbeing. We embrace an anti-racist, public health framework by addressing the injustices that cause poor health, including the social determinants of health, and supporting the integration of health promotion and prevention, as well as resilience-building and healing activities. We recognize the importance of addressing historical and intergenerational inequities that impact health across the lifespan as well as the health and wellbeing of families and communities.

The Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice provides a first-of-its-kind platform coordinating and advancing the trauma-informed movement. Through coalition-building, advocacy, policy, networking, education, and innovation, we are breaking down barriers, bridging divides, and uniting advocates across all issue areas impacted by trauma. Our goal is to transform systems and unlock public supports that create the conditions for healthy, resilient communities in which all children, individuals, and families thrive. Our work shapes a more equitable future for allone hallmarked by healing-centered policies and practices that truly promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

CTIPP was founded by many national leaders in the trauma-informed movement who helped shape the direction and understood the type of work the organization needed to do. Though this work was done through volunteer labor for the first several years of the organization, in 2021 CTIPP gained capacity to be loaned an executive director, and the following year hired its first staff. As we have developed capacity to build a paid team, our capacity to fill the needed gaps to help build the trauma-informed movement have only grown.

CTIPP has made tremendous progress as a small organization in its history thus far. From monthly calls that have spanned more than five years to bring together advocates (recorded for more than three years), to synthesizing research and publishing multiple toolkits and guides to support integration of trauma-informed approaches in a variety of settings, to promoting advocacy in support of trauma-informed legislation, to organizing briefings and workshops for policymakers and practitioners, and so much more, CTIPP has continued to grow. To note, CTIPP has been intentional in modeling trauma-informed approaches and works hard to collaborate with other organizations to further build the movement. More on our organization's progress can be seen on the history section of our website, as well as in the annual reports that we have created at the end of each year since we have had paid staff capacity.
