Free SAMHSA Training: How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses
Application deadline: Friday, February 21, 2020
Are you an experienced trainer interested in developing your capacity to provide trauma-informed training to your local agencies and community? The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) GAINS Center for Behavioral Health and Justice Transformation has a free training just for you!
“How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses” is a train-the-trainer event designed for community-based criminal justice system professionals such as law enforcement, community corrections (probation, parole, and pretrial services), court personnel, and human service providers that serve adult justice-involved populations. While not a requirement to apply, this year’s training events will place special emphasis during the selection process on applicants who provide training to drug courts and/or re-entry programs.
When applying, you can choose from three two-day training events in 2020, all of which will be held at the Sage Colleges in Albany, New York:
- June 10-11
- July 22-23
- August 12-13
While selected applicants must cover their own travel expenses, there are no fees for registration, tuition, materials, or follow-up technical assistance and support associated with the event.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to become the local expert in trauma-informed training for your agency or community!
