Training Overview Description

This training explores how a Trauma-Informed Care approach can support the work of Frontline workers across Alaska. Participants will learn concepts associated with the impact of various types of trauma and how that information affects critical interactions. In discussing trauma, whether individual, complex, current, historical, or multi-generational, participants will explore strategies to improve their work with the people they serve. This training will include an in-depth look at the impact of early childhood trauma on health and behavior through the Adverse Childhood Experiences Studies (A.C.E.S.) and will discuss the building blocks of resilience. Examples of successful trauma-informed approaches to interactions and interventions will be explored in an interactive format.


  • What it means to be trauma-informed and how it can positively affect interactions
  • Identify how trauma impacts the brain (health and behavior)
  • Understanding various types of trauma and their short and long-term impacts
  • Learn about Adverse Childhood Experiences (A.C.E.S.) and Resilience factors
  • Reflect on trauma-informed interventions and helpful strategies for effective interactions
