The Trauma 101 training focuses on understanding how trauma impacts the body and the brain, how people adapt to trauma and what we can do as providers and community members to support recovery and resiliency. The Trauma 101 training is not training on a specific type of intervention. It is focused on how we can use a better understanding of trauma to be trauma-informed.
The 2016 Alaskan Advanced Trauma Treatment Institute is an opportunity to receive advanced training on traumatic stress and complex trauma treatment for children and adults.
Why: A growing number of organizations in Alaska are developing trauma-focused services to improve outcomes for behavioral health service recipients. With the support of the State of Alaska’s Division of Behavioral Health, the Alaska Child Trauma Center at Anchorage Community Mental Health Services will be hosting a three and a half-day Trauma Institute in Anchorage. This year’s Institute will focus on the science of traumatic stress, mobilizing communities and organizations to respond to traumatic stress, and complex trauma treatment.
Who: During a special Priority Registration period, organizations that are treatment grantees of the Division of Behavioral Health will have an opportunity to register to send 2 persons from their organization to the Institute. After this Priority Registration period ends, any remaining seats will be filled on a first-come registration basis.
