SAMHSA’s GAINS Center Seeks Experienced Trainers to Participate in Trauma‑Informed Responses Train‑the‑Trainer Event 

SAMHSA’s GAINS Center is now soliciting applications from experienced trainers (individuals) who are interested in developing their capacity to provide trauma-informed training in their local agencies/communities via the How Being Trauma Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses curriculum. Selected applicants will learn to facilitate the training via a virtual Train-the-Trainer (TTT) event and subsequently deliver the training program in their local communities. While not a requirement to apply to this opportunity, this year’s selection process will place special emphasis on applicants who provide training to drug courts and/or reentry programs. Some preference will be given to applicants that serve marginalized and/or underserved populations.

Applications are due February 16, 2023.

There will be at least two virtual TTT events scheduled, with the possibility of a third, for April 26 and 28, May 15 and 19, and/or June 8 and 9, 2023. Please note the dates before applying and include your availability in the application as directed. If selected, you will be expected to attend one of these full 2-day TTT events virtually.
