Research & Development

Together, with families, in-the-field providers, and applied researchers, we are building the evidence base for Trauma-Directed Interaction (TDI)TM. While we use knowledge from data to improve TDI with science, we also integrate lessons from lived experiences to better support providers and serve families. It is all part of doing good and doing it well. The published works below represent what we know so far.


We look forwarding to discovering more together.
