SAMHSA's GAINS Center for Behavioral Health and Justice Transformation is soliciting applications from communities interested in its How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses training. The target audiences for this training are community-based criminal justice system professionals, including police, community corrections (probation, parole, and pre-trial services officers), court personnel, and other human service providers.
The GAINS Center will offer the training events free of charge to 10 selected communities between February 2015 and August 2015. Since the purpose of this training initiative is to offer targeted technical assistance and training to prepared communities in the field, there are no fees for registration, tuition, or materials associated with these trainings. Applications due December 5, 2014.
