Trauma-Informed Practice in the Training Environment

Multiplying Connections created "Walking the Walk: Modeling Trauma Informed Practice in the Training Environment," a two-page resource guide to help train staff who work with children and families affected by trauma. The guide provides specific principles of trauma-informed practice and explains how each is essential for professional development. The principles of practice are:

  • Creating safety
  • Maximizing opportunities for choice and control
  • Fostering connections
  • Managing emotions and promoting self-reflection

The guide also provides suggestions for integrating each principle into customized training modules.

The resource can be found on Multiplying Connections' website:
