Trauma Course

The Warren Coalition, in partnership with Northwestern Prevention Collaborative, is offering a free, virtual Course 1 Trauma-Informed Training in March. This course, based on the Community Resilience Initiative curriculum, is designed to provide information about identifying and responding to trauma with evidence-based resilience strategies. The concepts imparted are useful for teachers, coaches, managers, and anyone working in a customer-service or client-based industry.

This six-hour, online course is broken into three sessions, all of which are required to receive the Trauma- Informed Certification. The classes will be offered March 15, 22, and 29, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. To complete the required pre-registration process, email Christa Shifflett at

This training, which normally costs $150, is being made available to our community free of charge thanks to the support of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as part of an award totaling $3,333,333.33 with 0% percentage financed with non- governmental sources. The contents are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the official views of, nor an endorsement, by HRSA, HHS, or the U.S. Government. For more information, please visit


If you are a community leader, teacher, supervisor, pastor, or work with others in any capacity, this training is for you! If you have suffered trauma in your own life and you want to better understand the lasting impacts it has made, this training is for you! If you want to make a difference in your community, this training is for YOU.

This free virtual training will provide you with information about identifying and responding to trauma with evidence-based resilience strategies when working with an audience whose trauma history is possibly unknown.

There will be three classes held over two weeks, all of which are required for the Trauma Informed Certification. The three classes will be held March 15th, 22nd, and 29th, each from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm EST.
