OSSE, in collaboration with InSite Solutions and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH) Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, will host trauma informed care trainings tailored for individuals who work in schools.
The training will present:
- an overview on the concept of trauma,
- a review 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 Life Improvement for Teens (LIFT) interactive intervention for adolescents exposed to trauma), 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 LEA that participates in the training will receive an opportunity (subject to availability of hours) to complete a case consultation session with InSite Solutions and MGUH. The consultation session is designed to support sustainability in competency areas around school-focused trauma informed care.
Audience: The training and consultation sessions are only available for current staff at District of Columbia LEAs.
