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 TSI and Dr. Courtney Baker at Tulane University.

To obtain a sample copy of the ARTIC, complete this brief Request for ARTIC Scale Sample Copy form.

We recently scheduled two FREE Webinars  about the ARTIC Scale.  Due to popular demand, we’ve now posted  a recording of the June 12th Webinar here. Registration for the July 19th webinar is now full.

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