Comprehensive Trauma-Informed Care Training


Early life experiences are the foundational building blocks for development, learning, and health throughout a person’s lifetime. Trauma can have a long-term effect on well-being and functioning for children, adults, families, and our community.

Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center has developed a new training on adverse childhood experiences (ACE) and trauma-informed care (TIC).


The purpose of training is to increase the community’s collective ability to support individuals who have experienced traumatic events through the provision of supportive trauma-informed strategies and services.
