Live Webinar: STRTPs as Part of an Integrated Trauma-Informed System


This three-hour webinar will first begin with reviewing the biological basis of stress and trauma of youth who are in foster care. Participants will understand the behavioral effects of trauma as they consider placement for youth in a Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP). This training will cover different trauma-informed approaches starting from entry, during care, and exiting a STRTP to assist in successful outcomes for youth.

This training is being presented by Dr. Loc H. Nguyen. He has 33 years of experience working with vulnerable populations, including children, seniors, refugees, and those affected by disasters. Dr. Nguyen is currently the Child Welfare Policy Consultant for the County Welfare Directors Association of CA (CWDA), specializing in Continuum of Care (CCR) and Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) issues. He previously served as the Child Welfare Director of San Mateo County.
