Intended Audience

  • School psychologists
  • Mental health professionals

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that more than two thirds of school aged children have experienced at least one traumatic event by age 16. This staggering statistic suggests that a significant number of students are likely struggling with mental health issues related to trauma. This training will teach therapeutic, evidence-based practice interventions for working with students who have experienced trauma. The trainer will break down the steps involved in a cognitive behavioral approach and will share resources and strategies for working with students in an academic setting.

Participants Will

  • Learn how to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions to support students who have experienced trauma
  • Learn how to utilize evidence-based treatment methods in the school setting
  • Learn how to adapt appropriate treatment interventions according to the type of trauma the student has experienced

A Certificate of Completion is available for virtual trainings, in-person trainings, Special Training Opportunities and Technical Assistance Projects. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities.
