This is a six-part series. Registration can either be done for any single one of the six parts or for the whole series collectively. Any one part costs $25.00 to participate. Registering for all six carries a $20.00 discount, coming to a total of $130.00. Each one of the parts has its own registration page (see links below). Every page also contains the option for registering for all six. If you would like to come to a number of them but not all six, please register for each one you expect to attend individually.
If you are an LSW, LCSW, LMFT, LPC or NCC MA and would like continuing education credits, you will have an opportunity to confirm that option in the evaluation form you will receive after the class via survey monkey. There is a single $10 fee for receiving CE credits for any part of this series. That fee only needs to be paid once even if credit is desired for multiple sessions. The first time you select that you want CE credits on an eval form, you will be given the opportunity to pay that fee. No CE certificates will be issued unless that fee is received and the evaluation form filled out.
A trauma-informed and resilient approach is one where communities, organizations, programs and systems: (1) realizes the prevalence and impact of trauma, (2) recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in individuals, families and groups, (3) responds by integrating the knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures and practices, and (4) resists practices that could cause more harm (SAMHSA, 2018). These monthly on-line workshops are designed to assist participants with increasing their awareness and knowledge of trauma, including psychological trauma and vicarious trauma, and the key principles of a trauma-informed approach. Additionally, these monthly online workshops are designed to provide practical and evidence-based techniques and skills for how ministers, community leaders, and mental health professionals can develop trauma-informed and resilient communities.
- Participants will be able to realize the prevalence and impact of trauma.
- Participants will be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in individuals, families, and groups.
- Participants will be able to understand practical and evidence-based techniques and skills for developing trauma-informed and resilient communities.
