Sure - Canadian Substance Use Resource and Knowledge Exchange Centre

The TIP Guide is based on: findings from current literature; lessons learned from implementation in other jurisdictions; and ideas offered by practitioners who participated in focus groups and interviews in 2011 in each of the BC Health Regions. An important goal of the TIP Guide and Checklist is to build on what is already working for individuals, practitioners and programs. It is not about replacing existing good practices; rather, it is about refining existing practices and informing mental health treatment professionals about trauma-informed approaches.
