SAMHSA’s GAINS Center Seeks Communities to Develop Trauma‑Informed Training Capacity

The GAINS Center is offering a series of Train-the-Trainer (TTT) events to teach local trainers to deliver its How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses curriculum. The target audiences for this training are community-based adult criminal justice system professionals, including reentry staff, drug court personnel, community corrections officers (probation, parole, and pretrial services), law enforcement officers (including local Crisis Intervention Team trainers), and mental health and substance use disorder treatment service providers and peers who work with justice-involved adult populations. The GAINS Center will offer this virtual TTT event free of charge to selected applicant sites between January and August 2023.

To apply, submit the completed application no later than November 10, 2022.

Informational webinars with an overview of the opportunity and how to prepare the application will be held on October 19, 2022, from 11:00-12:00, and October 20, 2022, from 12:00-1:00.
