NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center
Under a multi-year partnership agreement, KVC Health Systems has teamed up with New York University and Dr. Glen Saxe, Director of The Child Study Center at NYU Langone Medical Center and founder of Trauma Systems Therapy (TST), to create the NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center. This innovative training center provides expertise to clinicians throughout the Midwest, promoting the use of effective trauma treatment and services for children, adolescents and families.
KVC has collaborated with Dr. Saxe on the adaptation and implementation of TST throughout KVC’s continuum of care in child welfare. Online opportunities, workshops, and at-home training options are used to train both healthcare professionals and foster family participants.
Professionals working in physical and mental health, child welfare, education and juvenile justice systems are welcome to attend this seminar. Participants will learn several objectives including:
- The meaning, impact and relevance of childhood traumatic stress on youth, families, systems and those that provide service to such youth and families
- How to recognize the symptoms of childhood traumatic stress
- Effective ways to support youth and families coping with childhood traumatic stress
- How to recognize the signs of secondary traumatic stress and develop effective ways of coping
The NYU/KVC Midwest Trauma Training Center is connected to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network through a grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
