SAMHSA’S GAINS Center Seeks Experienced Trainers to Participate in Trauma-informed Responses Train-the-Trainer Event for Individuals

SAMHSA’s GAINS Center for Behavioral Health and Justice Transformation, operated by Policy Research Associates, Inc. (PRA), is known nationally for its work regarding people with behavioral health needs involved in the criminal justice system. Each year, the GAINS Center provides its trauma-informed responses training, How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses, to the field via direct deliveries and Train-the-Trainer (TTT) events. The target audiences for the training program are primarily community-based criminal justice system professionals, including law enforcement, community corrections (probation, parole, and pre-trial services), court personnel, as well as human service providers that serve adult justice-involved populations. To find out more about How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses training program, please visit the GAINS Center website.

The GAINS Center is now soliciting applications from experienced trainers (individuals) who are interested in developing their capacity to provide trauma-informed training in their local agencies/communities via the GAINS Center’s How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses training program. Selected applicants will learn how to facilitate the training via a centralized Train-The-Trainer (TTT) event and subsequently deliver the training program in their local communities across the country. This year’s training events will place special emphasis during the selection process on applicants who provide training to drug courts and/or re-entry programs.

The GAINS Center is offering this event to experienced trainers who successfully complete the application process at no cost to the participant. While participants must cover their own travel expenses, there are no fees for registration, tuition, materials, or follow-up technical assistance and support associated with the event. If this TTT event for individuals is of interest to you, please review the solicitation and submit your completed application form to the GAINS Center no later than February 22, 2019.

There are two TTT events scheduled for May 22-23 & May 29-30, 2019 in Albany, NY. Selected applicants will be expected to attend either one of these full 2-day trainings.

  • Good morning! I applied last year but was not accepted that time. I am interested in applying again and supported by my County Manager in Grant County NM. I am coordinating the County’s Stepping Up program initiative with her and we are wondering how many training slots are available this year? Thanks so much!

  • I have several questions:
    – I would like to take this training, but am unable to do so in May; will further trainings on the east coast be available later this year?
    – Although I have led trainings over the years, I do not have 40 hours nor would I consider myself an experienced, “polished trainer.” However, I have worked extensively in the criminal justice field and am an experienced clinician whose agency is embracing trauma-informed care. I’m wondering if I would be considered given my limited presentation experience.

  • I work in migratory and criminal justice systems and I cant find it any more interest in this manner. Not only for self-growth. But, The experience of exchanging new and working formulas through expirienced pratitioners in developing a more Humanistic Psycholigy in our Criminal Justice Systems through diversified cultural resourcing and education expansion enhancing a healthy comunity and social integrecy.
