Not to toot our own horn too much, but Echo has been working in this field for some time, providing trauma-informed, nonviolent parenting classes and in the last year expanding our professional development work that we used to only do by contract into public trainings (with CEUs available). 

Check out our website: www.echoparenting.org

Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center specifically has a training, From Trauma to Resilience, that they will bring to organizations.

Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center (Gundersen NCPTC) and its programs, Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (JWRC) and Center for Effective Discipline (CED), work to end all forms of child maltreatment through education, training and prevention, while advocating for and serving children, adult survivors and communities.

Gundersen NCPTC prepares current and future child protection professionals to recognize and report the abuse of children.
