What is trauma-informed care, what is trauma-specific treatment, and what do they have to do with you? If you have any contact with children, adolescents, and their families – as part of your profession or your volunteer work – they have absolutely everything to do with you.
This training is open to frontline service providers, family court professionals, school administrators, school teachers, guidance counselors, faith-based groups, law enforcement officers, providers of pediatric medical care, mentors, childcare providers, and those who volunteer with children and adolescents.
- be provided with and will receive training on the “Core Competencies of Trauma-Informed Care for Agencies and Organizations in South Carolina That Serve Children, Adolescents, and Their Families.”
- receive a detailed explanation of the standards (relevant to trauma) to be expected in terms of knowledge, values and attitudes, communication, practice, organizations and systems, and communities.
- be given the model for how we all – individuals, professionals, stakeholders, and communities – should respond to children, adolescents, and families who have encountered traumatic events.
