Professional Program in Trauma-Informed Interventions

Researchers have documented the prevalence of trauma in the lives of the vast majority of public sector clients. Programs and systems that are seeking to integrate trauma-informed interventions include mental health, substance abuse, criminal justice, victim assistance and child welfare.


These CEU workshops are primarily designed for licensed clinicians and others with experience working in the field.
