Why pursue a Trauma Informed Educational Practices for Children and Adolescents Certificate?

The one-year, 12-credit hour trauma informed educational practices for children and adolescents certificate will help you make an important impact in communities. The mission of the program is to prepare theoretically and practically equipped, caring, committed and competent trauma sensitive teachers and leaders or community and youth service providers. It builds knowledge as well as skills for working with PK-12 students who’ve been victims of childhood trauma and the negative effects it has on the brain and subsequent learning and behavior.

If you have a desire to advance systemic change for schools and organizations that serve children and families, our certificate program will propel your skill set beyond what you can receive in a local or online workshop. You will dive deep into childhood adversity theories and educational practices and become primed to serve your workplace and community in creating sustainable change as a trauma invested setting.
