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.
