Online, self-paced trauma training series now available


Though we've had to put our classroom-based trauma trainings on hold, we're delighted to announce a new online, self-paced trauma training series that is free and available to anyone in the community who interacts with individuals and families who may have experienced trauma, including law enforcement and criminal justice professionals, first responders, healthcare and behavioral health providers, human services professionals, educators, employers, government agencies, faith community leaders, and others.

The course, titled "Understanding Trauma, Resilience and Trauma Informed Care", provides a foundational understanding of trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), resilience, vicarious trauma, self-care, and trauma-informed care.

This self-paced course is broken out into 4 modules of 1 hour each, with interactive activities in each module and a knowledge quiz at the end of each module.

The full 4-hour course is currently approved for continuing education credits for social workers and law enforcement. 

Each 1-hour module of the course is also currently approved for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for Physicians, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), and Nurses.  Please note: There are separate links for medical professionals wishing to obtain CME credits to access the training modules.
