Spring 2023 Cohort 5 Train the Trainer Training
Snohomish County Human Services Behavioral Health and Snohomish County Children’s Wellness Coalition are training, providing tools, and supporting organizations who want to become trauma informed. Our C.A.R.E. community movement, which stands for Compassion, Appreciation, Resilience & Empowerment, equips organizations to become trauma informed. What this means is that organizations commit to train their entire staff on trauma informed principles (safety, empowerment and choice, cultural, historical and gender issues, transparency and trustworthiness, collaboration and mutuality and peer support) and work towards sustainable policy and procedure changes and a culture that deepens relationships and embeds these principles.
For assistance, please call 425-388-7254.
