Highlighting an NIC Knowledgebase: Trauma Informed Practices and Justice-Involved Women
NIC News & Updates


The National Institute of Corrections responds to thousands of requests for corrections-specific information every year. When we get questions that we think others might find of interest, we add the answers to our Knowledgebase Collection.  An NIC Knowledgebase is comprised of current, concise research articles and resources that provide a brief introduction to a subject.

Check out this NIC Knowledgebase on the question of “What are Trauma-Informed Practices with Justice-Involved Women?”.  Examples of resources in this Knowledgebase include:
