Obtaining the ARTIC Scale



Thank you for your interest in the Attitudes Related to Trauma-Informed Care (ARTIC) Scale!

The ARTIC is one of the first psychometrically valid measure of trauma-informed care (TIC) to be published in the peer-reviewed literature. The ARTIC is a measure of professional and paraprofessional attitudes favorable or unfavorable toward TIC. It was developed collaboratively by the Traumatic Stress Institute of Klingberg Family Centers and Dr. Courtney Baker at Tulane University.

To obtain a sample copy of the ARTIC, send an email to artic@klingberg.org.

As of February 1, 2018, our pricing has changed. Click here for information about pricing and how to obtain the ARTIC Scale.
