Community Workshops

Our community education programming is designed to make a positive impact by incorporating theory on best practices and evidence from program evaluation. We view learning as a participatory process, therefore all of our workshops are highly interactive and experiential. 

The following workshops are provided at no cost to the community. These offerings are targeted at adults in the community. Availability of these workshops may depend on your location. Click here to request a community workshop for your group or organization.

Sexual Trauma 101 is an interactive training through which participants learn about the problem of sexual violence, including types, impacts, causes and solutions.

Selected Triple P is for parents or caregivers with children 12 years or younger who are interested in promoting their child’s development through one or more of the three seminars: Positive Parenting, Raising Confident and Competent Children, and Raising Resilient Children. The series of 1.5-hour seminars can assist parents with specific concerns about their child’s behavior or development.

TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children, to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child reach his highest potential.

ACEs, or adverse childhood experiences, describes all types of abuse, neglect, and other traumatic childhood experiences. This workshop explores the landmark Kaiser Permanente/CDC ACE Study which links the short- and long-term effects of adverse childhood experiences to many of society’s most challenging issues. The study scientifically shares the effects of these experiences during development to increased risk of physical, mental, and behavioral problems later in life.

Youth Education
