Ian’s specialty is to develop and integrate into practice “High-Quality Standards of Care” that is inclusive of trauma-informed practices standards and “Required Organizational Practices (ROPs)” for Organizational Accreditation. 


Research suggests that up to 90% of clients who enter mental health and addiction services have a history of trauma.


Agencies that provide services to vulnerable populations having historical trauma need to integrate practices that are trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive. Many agencies today have trained in trauma-informed, but cannot effectively integrate trauma-informed practices into clinical practice and service delivery. 


Ian will bring knowledge and leadership to your organization, agency, or program to develop “Trauma-informed Standards of Care” that are designed for the unique and individual needs of your agency, service delivery model, and resource size.


His approach is not only to work with your organization to design the specific trauma-informed standards of care, but also to develop the integration component into clinical practice and service delivery with accountability and monitoring for all levels of the organization to the adherence to the trauma-informed standards of care.


With this type of approach, your organization, agency or program will be providing service from a “do no harm approach” to vulnerable populations.


Ian specifically has provided consultation to the following types of systems for Trauma-Informed Standards of Care (TISC) or TISC & ROPs include:

  • hospital systems

  • mental health organizations for children, youth, and adult services including residential or outpatient

  • addiction services

  • agencies that service homeless populations 

  • homelessness shelters

  • Women shelters

  • any all other agencies that provide services to populations with a history of complex or compound trauma

Our overview process to assist your organization on your journey to establish Culturally-Sensitive Trauma-Informed Standards (CSTI) of Care includes:

  1. 2-day training for organizational leaders on CSTIC leadership
