Research Study: Trauma and Violence Informed Care

Is your community-based health or social service organization considering implementing trauma- and violence-informed care? If you are working in such an organization in London, we need your help!

We are examining how organizations in London learn about and start considering TVIC as an approach to practice in their organizations. If you have been involved in this kind of thinking where you work, and you volunteer to participate, we would arrange a confidential, 20-30 minute interview at a time and place convenient to you. Questions will include how you and your organization first became aware of TVIC, and previous, current and future steps to implement it, if any.

For more information about this study, or to volunteer for this study, please contact: Tanaz Javan at
