ACA, New England is excited to be working with trainers from the Center for School Behavioral Health at Mental Health America of Greater Houston to provide two sessions for professionals working with youth! Attendees can register for one or both sessions. Participation in 101 is NOT required to join 102.

Communities experience trauma that shows up in a myriad of ways, which can lead to many negative social and health related outcomes. The Trauma 101 & 102 trainings help youth serving professionals understand adverse childhood experiences, signs and symptoms of trauma, related mental health issues in youth, and offers trauma-informed practices for helping them achieve mental well-being and overall success.

Registration for each of these e-sessions is separate, but we encourage participants to join both!
