Trauma Informed Development and Education (TIDE) - Project Story
Developing a Trauma Informed Practice Culture
The Trauma Informed Development and Education (TIDE) project has been a four-year project designed to respond to a need for consistent and association-wide Trauma-Informed Practice training, resource development and shifting of the organizational culture through implementation of trauma-informed principles and practices within all programs and services across YWCA Toronto. The project received financial assistance from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
The project aims to build capability around trauma informed support for women and children accessing YWCA Toronto programs and services. YWCA Toronto and project research partner, Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (CEWH) collaborated to launch the project and facilitated the necessary activities for meeting project objectives. This team created a brand identity, which included designing a logo and naming the project-Trauma Informed Development and Education (TIDE).
