Think Trauma

The Think Trauma Toolkit is a modularized, skills-based, interactive, trauma-informed training curriculum for staff who work directly with youth in the juvenile justice settings. The goal of Think Trauma is to work toward creating/enhancing a trauma-informed setting by increasing awareness and knowledge of staff regarding the impact of trauma and offering direct, non-clinical approaches to engage and respond to traumatized youth. The Think Trauma curriculum contains four modules that address the following topics:

  1. The relationship between trauma and delinquency;
  2. The impact of traumatic stress on development;
  3. Survival coping strategies; and
  4. Organizational stress and vicarious trauma

Think Trauma is a no cost training provided for front line staff in the juvenile justice system. For more information or to request a training please contact Amber.Becker@fssa.IN.gov.
