What are the versions of the ARTIC Scale? How do I determine which to use?

There are 6 versions of the ARTIC scale, three for human service organizations and three for education settings. Organizations and schools select the version that is most appropriate for their setting and how they plan to use the ARTIC. All version are included when you purchase the ARTIC.

ARTIC FOR HUMAN SERVICES

1. ARTIC-45 — Human Services

• 45-item scale. Five subscales and two supplementary subscales.
• To be used in human service settings that have begun implementing trauma-informed care (TIC).

2. ARTIC-35 — Human Services

• 35-item scale. Five subscales. Excludes two supplementary subscales.
• To be used in human service settings that have NOT yet begun implementation of TIC.

3. ARTIC-10 — Human Services

• 10-item short form. One total score.
• To be used in human service settings that have or have not begun implementation of TIC.
• Used when there is time or resource limitations making the ARTIC-45 and ARTIC-35 not feasible.

ARTIC FOR EDUCATION

1. ARTIC-45 — Education

• 45-item scale. Five subscales and two supplementary subscales.
• To be used in education settings that have begun implementing TIC.
• Language modified to fit education settings (i.e., “student” rather than “client”).

2. ARTIC-35 — Education

  • 35-item scale. Five subscales. Excludes two supplementary subscales.
  • To be used in education settings that have NOT yet begun implementation of TIC.
  • Language modified to fit education settings (i.e., “student” rather than “client”).

3. ARTIC-10 — Education

• 10-item short form. One total score.
• To be used for education settings that have or have not begun implementation of TIC.
• Used when there is time or resource limitations making ARTIC-45 and ARTIC-35 not feasible.
• Language modified to fit education settings (ie., “student” rather than “client”).

What is the evidence supporting the ARTIC Scale?

Items for the ARTIC were generated by content experts via a community-based participatory research approach (Hausman et al., 2013). The result included 8 subscales consisting of 75 potential items. A questionnaire was developed including these items, demographic items, and items aimed at demonstrating preliminary validity. The questionnaire was completed by a sample of 760 service providers, most working in human services and education.

Item analysis resulted in 45 items and seven subscales — the ARTIC-45 (five core and two supplementary subscales). It also resulted in a 35 item version excluding the supplementary sub-scales (ARTIC-35) and a 10 item short form including items from the core subscales (ARTIC-10). Confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the hypothesized seven factor model fit the data well. Internal consistency was excellent for the ARTIC-45 (α = .93) and ARTIC-35 (α = .91), and very good for the ARTIC-10 (α = .82). Subscale alphas ranged from respectable to very good (DeVellis, 2012). Test-retest reliabilities were strong with correlations of .84 at ≤ 120 days, .80 at ≤ 121-150 days, and .76 at 151-180 days for the ARTIC-45. Associations among ARTIC subscales and the validity indicators provide preliminary psychometric support related to validity.

Numerous validity studies are now under way using the ARTIC. One in the New Orleans school system found that the ARTIC scores increased significantly on all sub-scales following a two-day training on trauma and TIC.

The next formal validity study of the ARTIC Scale will be submitted from publication in June 2018.

      Risking Connection™(RC) is a foundational trauma training curriculum and training program for professionals who work with trauma survivors. Rooted in relational and attachment theory, it provides a mechanism for individuals and organizations to implement trauma-informed care in their practice.

    • Restorative Approach Training

      The Restorative Approach® (RA) is a trauma-informed alternative to traditional "point and level" systems for child congregate care settings. Based on the principles of restorative justice, it translates what we know about trauma and how children heal into specific treatment strategies.
