Trauma-Informed Community Networks

A Trauma-Informed Community Network — or TICN — is a diverse group of professionals, partners and community members working collaboratively to create support structures for the successful implementation of trauma-informed care initiatives across the health, human services and education systems.

SCAN is currently facilitating two local TICNs:

Schedule a Trauma Awareness Training with Loudoun TICN! (Trauma Awareness Training Flyer)


• Trauma-Informed Community Network of Greater Prince William (2019 PrinceWilliam TICN Meetings Flyer)
Schedule a Trauma Awareness Training with TICN of Greater Prince William! (Trauma Awareness Training Flyer)


Other TICNs in Northern Virginia include:

Fairfax Trauma-Informed Community Network


The TICN undertakes a multi-disciplinary effort to improve the lives of children, youth and their families through a comprehensive system of prevention—a collaborative and integrated approach to achieve common goals.  Research has shown that a prevention-oriented approach can have a positive impact on the quality of life of citizens by reducing criminal activity, drug/alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, childhood obesity, school dropout rates, bullying, suicides and other poor outcomes.
