In the Fall of 2012, ITTIC was awarded a training grant from the
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
Twenty local professionals were trained to deliver the training "How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses."
We are always looking for additional spots to deliver the training, so please contact us if you are interested in our trainers coming to you!
ITTIC affiliates have created a presentation on trauma and
trauma-informed care with regard to veterans and military
ITTIC will be partnering with different organizations to deliver this presentation once a month in the WNY community. We have presented to several sites, including the University at Buffalo's Continuing Education program and Medaille College.
The project is being headed up by ITTIC affiliates Daphne Booth and Samuel DiVincenzo. The goal of the project is to raise community awareness of trauma and trauma-informed care within the context of working with veterans and their family members. Education will be aimed at community members, families and professionals and will focus on the various aspects of the military from military culture and combat-related trauma to the effects that deployment and trauma have on military service members and their families. This delivery will also focus on what trauma-informed care looks like specific to the military. Interested in having the presentation at your organization?
