How Being Trauma-Informed Improves

Criminal Justice & Public Health System Responses

 

 Overview

Although prevalence estimates vary, there is consensus that high percentages of individuals involved in mental health, child welfare, and criminal justice systems have experienced serious trauma throughout their lifetime. The impact of traumatic experiences can challenge a person’s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services when dealing with the effects of untreated trauma, like substance abuse.

 Objectives

How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice & Public Health System Responses is a training program for system professionals to:

  • Increase understanding of trauma
  • Create an awareness of the impact of trauma on behavior
  • Improve system responses when professionals are impacted by vicarious trauma
  • Develop trauma-informed responses

 Trauma-informed responses can help to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, and thereby increase safety for all, decrease recidivism in systems, and promote and support recovery of justice-involved women and men with serious mental illness. Partnerships across systems can also help to link individuals to trauma-informed services and treatment for trauma.

Program Participants

This highly-interactive training is tailored to human service professionals including:

  • Mental health providers
  • Substance abuse counselors
  • Community corrections (probation, parole, and pre-trial services officers)

 

Presenter:  Tia L. Roberts Hartsock 

 

Ms. Roberts Hartsock is a trainer and independent consultant on trauma and trauma-informed care. Additionally, she works part-time for The Research Corporation of University of Hawai`i as a researcher and program facilitator focusing on criminal justice program evaluation and development. Tia has an appointment as lecturer at the University’s Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work. She received her master’s in criminal justice administration from Chaminade University with a specialization in juvenile justice and her master’s in social work from University of Hawai`i with a specialization focus in mental health. Most recently she was the Project Director for a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) federal initiative to develop and provide mental health services for adolescent female trauma survivors involved in the juvenile justice, mental health and/or child welfare systems. In that capacity, she oversaw multi-agency collaborations to improve Hawaii’s mental health system’s delivery of services for trauma survivors from a gender-specific and trauma-informed foundation. She is certified by SAMHSA’s Gain’s Center as a trainer on trauma-informed care. Ms. Hartsock has been working to improve the child and adult serving systems in mental health and criminal justice in Hawai`i for almost 20 years.
