Trauma Responsive Schools
What is the TRS-IA?
The Trauma Responsive Schools Implementation Assessment (TRS-IA) is a quality improvement tool developed by the NCTSN Treatment and Services Adaptation Center for Resilience, Hope, and Wellness in Schools and the National Center for School Mental Health.
The TRS-IA is an evidence-informed self-assessment that comprises eight key domains of trauma-responsive schools and districts:
Whole school safety planning
Prevention/early intervention trauma programming
Whole school prevention planning
Targeted trauma-informed programming

Family and community engagement
Administration time is less than 20 minutes. Automatically generated feedback reports support schools and districts working to enhance their trauma responsiveness.
