Trauma-informed approach trainings

HCA is offering trainings in trauma-informed approach between July and September 2019 throughout Washington. Our goal is to infuse a trauma-informed approach into healing, well-being, and recovery work.

Who can attend?

Trainings are free and open to staff who provide direct care and services, supervisors, leaders and managers at:

  • Behavioral health agencies (defined for this project as those involved in prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery supports for substance use, as well as the types of mental health services provided in community mental health centers)
  • Health and human services state agencies
  • Community organizations with a nexus to behavioral health

In addition, we will be offering training sessions that are open to community members.
