The Trauma Informed Biographical Timeline (TIBT) is a trauma informed assessment that helps to put a person’s current situation in context with their life experiences. It is a way to help see the whole person, not just the case files. This 37 minute webinar and subsequent follow-up introduce you to the TIBT concepts and provide a brief preview of what to expect during Sarah’s full-day training.

Sarah Buffie’s webinars and trainings were a part of the CIP’s Healthy Kids Learning Community initiative, a dissemination endeavor designed to create an accessible, continuing resource for clinicians and caregivers dealing with the surmounting crises and dimensions that has occurred during the Ohio opiate epidemic over the past half decade.
In keeping with this mission, the Center for Innovative Practices, in collaboration with WraparoundOhio.org and the Healthy Kids Learning Community initiative, partnered with some of Ohio’s foremost experts in their respective fields to lend their perspectives via their areas of expertise in a community share for the Buckeye State’s youth, families, clinicians, and various stakeholders dealing with the challenges and recovery of those youth and families.
