HOW TO USE THIS ASSESSMENT
The following assessment has been developed to assist organizations in:
(1) Assessing the degree to which their training and education program or project is
comprehensive and trauma-informed
(2) Identifying areas for improvement.
Six main criteria will be considered. For each statement, consider whether or not the criteria
is adhered to in the training or education program being evaluated. If the criteria is
adhered to, put a “1” under the “YES” column. If not, put a “0” under the “NO” column.
Add up the “YES” total at the end of each section, and again for the combined total score.
Section scores identify areas of strength or weakness of that specific criteria; total score
indicates the degree to which a program or project is comprehensive, trauma-informed and
upholds survivor informed principles.
