As part of the Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus effort to improve mental health treatment for members, we are working with providers on a new initiative for trauma-informed care (TIC). TIC is an evidence-based practice that helps educate, inform and guide treatment options for those impacted by trauma. When implementing TIC, organizations can assess and treat trauma more effectively. TIC providers and facilities can improve members’ lives and improve health outcomes.


The training includes:

  • A brief overview.
  • Principles of TIC.
  • Agency self-assessment.
  • How to assess for trauma.
  • Treatment and intervention options.
