Even if you’re new to the youth work field, you’ve probably seen the impact of traumatic events like abuse or homelessness on the young people you serve. Before an agency can truly provide trauma-informed care, youth workers need to understand the basics of trauma and how it affects teens’ bodies and brains.

As part of its effort to help grantees of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) move toward trauma-informed care, The National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth created a new online training course, ‪Trauma-Informed Care.

This interactive course aims to help family and youth workers recognize and address traumatic stress to provide care tailored to the needs of each young person’s development. It also aims to prevent and address secondary trauma among service providers.

The training includes four modules:

  • Module 1: What is Trauma-Informed Care? Why Do It?
  • Module 2: What is Traumatic Stress? How Does it Affect Children’s Brains and Development?
  • Module 3: How Does Trauma Impact Young People? What Factors Can Help?
  • Module 4: How Can You Provide Trauma-Informed Care?

The course is free, and participants will receive a certificate of completion. Find ‪more online trainings on FYSB’s website.
