The evidence continues to grow on the effectiveness of trauma-, gender-, and sex-informed (TGS) approaches in all areas of the substance use field, including prevention, education, harm reduction, treatment, policy, and research. Trauma-informed practice (TIP) is a critically important approach to improving substance use services, programming, policy and health promotion initiatives. Further, unless we integrate a gender transformative approach into TIP, issues of equity can easily be ignored, or perpetuated.
These resources are provided as an aid to integrating the TGS approach.
