In 2022 we are continuing our Trauma Initiative. If you missed our training last year or would like a review please join us for Part-One Foundations and Part-Two Applications. If you feel you understand these concepts and are looking for more, please join us for the next part of this series, Part-Three Integration!

Part-One, Foundations - 3.0 CEU provided with OMHAS, DODD, and OCCRRA (AT134235)

During Foundations, we will focus on learning about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences Study), The Power of Resilience, Basics of Brain Science, Rhythm, Relationships and Attachment, Complex Developmental Trauma, and Practical Strategies to Respond to Trauma

Part-Two, Applications - 3.0 CEU provided with OMHAS, DODD and OCCRRA (AT134467)

During Applications, we will build Skills of Resilience for Clients and Staff, Use Brain Science to Implement Effective Services, Design Supportive Environments, and Improve Interactions. We will also grow our understanding of Equity and Equity Goals.

Part-Three, Integration Series - Every Monday from 9-11am starting April 25

Using a new training workbook, the Integration Series will build upon the concepts taught in Foundations and Application. Each session will go over one chapter of the workbook. Participants will engage with reflection questions, specific skill development, organizational leadership, equity and intergenerational trauma, and learn how to integrate brain-based, trauma-informed concepts into every aspect of serving children and families. There is a limit of one workbook per person.
