We are pleased to offer a continuing training series designed for school professionals to aid in creating a trauma-informed, resilient setting. The five-hour training will be held each fall and spring. The training incorporates many of the principals and objectives found in the new Child & Adult Advocacy Studies (CAASt) certificate program at USD. It can be taken in a five-hour time block but is broken down into one-hour modules.
A special thank you to the SD Department of Education for their support through the Project Aware grant. The training is free to all attendees and continuing education units will be available.
Supporting South Dakota Children’s Return to School
The USD Child & Adult Advocacy Studies (CAASt) certificate program and the Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment (CPCM) are pleased to offer a 5-hour CAASt webinar series to support the work of school staff seeking to create trauma-informed school settings. The webinar uses CAASt competencies to provide school personnel with applicable knowledge for working in multidisciplinary teams within the school. As a result, the CAASt webinar series will increase the universal knowledge, training, and competencies of school personnel and discuss perceived barriers to implementing trauma-informed care among school staff.
