About the Training
Historical and inter-generational trauma continues to impact tribal and urban communities. How this impacts our places of work, individuals and families is the behavior associated with trauma- chronic negativity, addictions, suicide, lateral oppression, violence and more. Where there has been trauma, healing is the answer.
This three-day interactive training will focus on providing a profound understanding of trauma on the brain, on behavior, how it plays out in the workplace and community and how to address trauma in your community. The training will also include how programs in their policies and delivery of services can be trauma-informed.
Who Should Attend
The Being Trauma Informed training is intended for tribal and urban workers representing health and social service programs, tribal leaders, TANF staff, behavioral health, administrative staff and others wanting to learn about trauma on the brain, behavior and policies. Being trauma-informed assists communities in moving past the residual impacts of inter-generational trauma.
Registrants who are unable to attend may send a replacement participant at no additional charge. Please provide us with the name of the replacement before the training. If a participant is unable to attend and no cancellation is made prior to the training or replacement is made, the FULL amount of registration will be charged as a no-show fee.
