This is a 1-day training hosted by STAR Institute for SPD. Following this 1-day training, participants may choose to participate in a 12-week online education research program which aims to develop knowledge and skills. The 12-week online education portion is anticipated to be 1 hour per week of participation, with guided review of evidence based practice in knowledge and intervention for developing trauma informed care skills.
