Growing awareness of the prevalence and impact of adverse childhood experiences has spurred implementation, research, and policy on trauma-informed approaches in schools. School staff buy-in to trauma-informed schools (TIS) is an essential early step to building a schoolwide trauma-informed culture. Buy-in is developed by building knowledge and shifting attitudes through a full staff professional development training on trauma. Measuring school staff attitudes relevant to TIS can help ensure the effectiveness of TIS implementation. One available tool for this purpose is the Attitudes Related to Trauma-Informed Care (ARTIC) Scale. Even when school staff develop TIS-favorable attitudes after training, the TIS initiative can be difficult to maintain. Therefore, this chapter closes with a discussion of several key factors known to support the sustainability of complex educational interventions that can be incorporated into the TIS implementation plan.
