Trauma-Informed Care Training

Trauma is pervasive and impacts all of us, children and adults. One way we can be responsive, healing centered, and recovery oriented in this space is to normalize that which we know is real. Building a form of care centered and informed by trauma can help promote a culture of safety, trust, empowerment and choice, and peer support. In collaboration with the Children’s Commission and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), the South Southwest MHTTC has compiled and curated documents meant to provide all available trauma-informed care training resources for various professionals.

The training resources provided in these documents were collected in a collaborative effort between the SAMHSA Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), the Cross Systems Trauma-informed Care initiative led by Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the Statewide Collaborative on Trauma-informed Care led by the Supreme Court of Texas Permanent Judicial Commission for Children, Youth and Families (Children’s Commission). This information has been compiled from multiple sources and the MHTTC, HHSC and the Children’s Commission cannot guarantee either the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of the information or the effectiveness of the trainings listed. The MHTTC, HHSC and the Children’s Commission do not endorse any one training resource, modality, or curriculum. These documents are intended to serve as a non-exhaustive list of resources as the field continues to change and evolve regarding trauma.

Trauma Informed Care Basics

As systems transition towards offering trauma-informed care, it's crucial for all levels of an organization to grasp its fundamentals. Resources and courses are available to introduce participants to stress, trauma, and trauma-informed care. Completing these courses can help organizational staff develop a common understanding, recognize stress and trauma, understand resilience in adversity, and learn how to support trauma-informed care. This online course, developed by the South Southwest MHTTC and the Texas Cross-Systems Trauma-Informed Care Initiative with SAMHSA's support, facilitates this essential learning.
