Organizational Readiness: NCWWI 1-page Summary

This paper provides a summary of the new 7-factor model that reflects the items that most contribute to organizational readiness for trauma-informed evidence-based practices (EBPs). It was developed as a result of schools of social work providing a child and adolescent trauma specialization actively partnering with their community-based field placement agencies to (1) help them sustain the capacity for evidence-based trauma treatment, and (2) provide sufficient evidence-based trauma treatment field placement sites for MSW students to support preparation of trauma-informed practitioners by university partners.
