Training and Seminars

As the education division of the Trauma Survivors Foundation, our main goal is to provide comprehensive and dynamic training for First Responders and the Professionals who care for them.  We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this education initiative helps us ensure that our partners, students, and workshop attendees are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community with our First Responders and delivers the support, the training, and the skills they need, when they need it.  

As a non-profit organization, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our decision-making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high-quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.  In so doing, we provide practical strategies, methods and interventions partners, students, First Responders and workshop attendees can use immediately to improve the outcomes of the population they serve.
