The Great Lakes MHTTC is offering this training for individuals working in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI. This training is being provided in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.




To be effective and efficient, organizations must provide their services in ways that do not inadvertently re-traumatize the people receiving support. Becoming trauma-informed means adapting practices, policies, physical spaces, and more to make services more accessible for everyone. This is especially important for people who have lived experiences of trauma, including staff. This class helps learners conceptualize the nature of this problem and offers practices that reduce the risk of re-traumatization.




  • Review impacts of trauma
  • Consider the mechanisms of re-traumatization
  • Become more mindful of negative messaging and language
  • Assess areas of trauma-informed practice using an assessment tool




Registrants who fully attend this event or training will be eligible to receive 2.0 continuing education hours provided by the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy. Certificates are disseminated by People Incorporated to all qualifying individuals after the conclusion of the event or training.
