SAMHSA’s GAINS Center Seeks Communities to Develop Trauma-Informed Training Capacity

SAMHSA’s GAINS Center for Behavioral Health and Justice Transformation, operated by Policy Research Associates, Inc. (PRA), known nationally for its work regarding people with behavioral health needs involved in the criminal justice system, is soliciting applications from communities interested in developing a capacity to provide trauma-informed training. The GAINS Center is offering a series of Train-The-Trainer (TTT) events to train local trainers to deliver its How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses training program. The target audiences for this 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, please visit the GAINS Center website.

The GAINS Center will offer the Train-The-Trainer (TTT) events free of charge to selected communities between February 2017 and August 2017. Since the purpose of this training initiative is to offer targeted technical assistance and training to prepared communities in the field, there are no fees for registration, tuition, or materials associated with these trainings. If a TTT event is of interest to your community, please review the solicitation and submit your completed application form to the GAINS Center no later than November 18, 2016.
