STRTP as Part of an Integrated Trauma-Informed System – Live Webinar


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.
