Trauma-Informed Systems Change: Online Workshops for Professionals

Sign up now to join us at an upcoming training


Training for Change: Transforming Systems To Be Trauma-Informed, Culturally Responsive, and Neuroscientifically Focused - Single-Day Training

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 61% of adults have had at least one adverse childhood experience. These traumatic experiences increase the risk for chronic physical and mental health conditions, sometimes leading to serious health and personal challenges.

Becoming a trauma-informed individual, organization, and society lowers stress levels and the risk of disease stress while supporting global well-being and promoting healing.

With this in mind, McLean Hospital’s Institute for Trauma-Informed Systems Change brings together the latest updates in neuroscience, trauma, and trauma-informed practices to offer training in trauma-informed practices and approaches, brain development, neuroscience of fear and trauma, and trauma-informed systems change.

Optional continuing education credits are available.
