In fall 2015, ITTIC partnered with the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute in a five-year contract around trauma and trauma-informed care training for those working with the AIDS/HIV+ population.

  • During the first four years of the project, ITTIC trained Peers from around the state as part of the AIDS Institute’s Peer certification program. 
  • ITTIC also trained three cohorts of “Champions” during the first four years in order to help them bring the knowledge and skills around trauma and trauma-informed care back to their spots across the state. 
  • The final year of the project is focused on curriculum development, training of the AIDS Institute Regional Training Centers to deliver the curriculum, publication writing and the training of a fourth cohort of Champions.

From May through September 2019, ITTIC will be facilitating a five-month learning collaborative to train trauma-informed care "Champions" sponsored by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).

  • Up to 30 individuals within New York State will be collaboratively selected by ITTIC and DCJS to participate in the learning collaborative, which will provide them with the knowledge and tools to plan for and begin to implement the trauma-informed change process in their agencies or organizations.
  • After the full-day initial training on 6/3/19, Champions will attend monthly consultations until they come back together for a half-day on 9/30/19.
