Message from National Center Co-Director, Dr. Virginia Strand

As students, faculty, social workers, field instructors, and agency administrators you have enabled us to work toward our vision of transformed social work trauma education and enhanced and sustained trauma treatment services for children and families. As most of you know, due to the loss of funding the Center will continue with reduced activities this year. Faculty who have taught the course may continue to do so and use the cases as needed. The cases are not in the public domain so only schools with faculty that have been trained may utilize them. We do hope full model schools will continue to offer the mental health course, secure training in an evidence-based trauma treatment for students, and place students with supervisors trained in an evidence-based trauma treatment. If faculty have questions about continuing to offer the course or in further developing a trauma-informed curriculum please do not hesitate to contact me as I will assist and direct you as best I can. If you have questions about trainers or public training I may be able to steer you in the right direction as well. Again, thank you for being part of this journey and for your contribution to developing a new generation of social workers ready and willing to work with traumatized children and families who need our support now more than ever.
