OSSE, in collaboration with InSite Solutions, will host trauma informed care trainings tailored for individuals who work in schools. The training content will include:
- An overview of the concept of trauma;
- A review of the impact of trauma on children/adolescents;
- An overview of trauma informed care treatment models (e.g., trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma systems therapy, cognitive behavioral intervention for trauma in schools); and
- Concepts, such as trauma informed care and related approaches, that can be implemented in schools and in classrooms to create a trauma informed culture.
Each school that participates in the training will receive an opportunity (subject to availability of hours) to complete a case consultation session with InSite Solutions. The consultation session is designed to support sustainability in competency areas around school-focused trauma informed care.
This training opportunity and corresponding consultation sessions are only available for current staff serving in public schools and public charter schools in the District of Columbia.
