Given the high cost of employee turnover, developing trauma-informed attitudes and skills needs to be initiated far earlier in multi-disciplinary team (MDT) careers. Deeply rooted in the 12 Core Concepts of Understanding Child Traumatic Stress, Project FORECAST (Foundations for Outreach through Experiential Child Advocacy Studies Training) is designed to introduce innovative strategies to help communities better prepare a trauma-informed workforce. This workshop will introduce participants to Problem-Based Learning Simulations designed for trauma-informed experiential training to benefit MDT members. This workshop will appeal to any professional who seeks to increase their community’s access to trauma-informed trainings in face-to-face or virtual environments. This workshop will only be recorded and available On-Demand from August 9, 2021 until December 17, 2021.
