Supporting Trauma-Informed Care & Polices for
EC Organizations & Providers


Trauma-Informed EC Advisory Coalition 

The lifelong impacts of trauma on children and adults is widely known.  However, Montana organizations have not had access to affordable and comprehensive education on creating trauma-informed programs and policies in the Early Childhood field.  A group of Early Childhood advocates across Montana came together to address this need and formed the Montana Trauma-Informed Early Childhood  (MTTIEC) Advisory Coalition. 


MTTIEC seeks to coordinate and expand access to trauma-informed training and services for early childhood professionals throughout Montana.
