The purpose of this training is to provide professionals with a comprehensive understanding of trauma and the impact of child and adolescent trauma/complex trauma on multiple domains ( Neurobiology, Physiology, Attachment, Affect Regulation, Behavioral Control, Cognition, Memory, Dissociation and Self Concept).  Participants will learn and/or review DSM 5 Trauma and Stressor Related Disorders. Participants will gain the knowledge, skills, and values needed to provide comprehensive trauma assessments and build competency in completing the trauma assessment component of the Comprehensive Child and Family Assessments (CCFA).  Participants will be trained to use UCLA PTSD RI, CATS (Child and Adolescent Trauma Screening), Life Events Checklist (LEC) and PTSD Checklist (PC-L) assessment tools, complete a written report of assessment, and make recommendations.

Important Information About Our Continuing Education Policy:

Please plan to arrive early or on time for these events.


The CHRIS Training Institute’s policy for issuing continuing education credits is based upon State Law and guidelines set forth by the Georgia Composite Board which state that “participants must attend the entire presentation in order to receive continuing education credit.” If you are more than 15 minutes late in arriving for a seminar, you are welcome to remain for the balance of the presentation, but we will not be able to issue continuing education credits to you as a participant. This is according to agency regulations requiring attendance at the entire presentation in order for CEUs to be issued. This policy applies to early departures as well – if you leave more than 15 minutes early, we will not be able to issue CEUs for your participation.We instituted this policy to ensure that our accreditation to offer CEs is not put into jeopardy. We will also not be able to issue you a refund for the registration fee if you arrive late to the training as we already counted on your presence in planning for the seminar. It is our goal to continue to provide you with quality, reasonably priced opportunities to acquire credits needed for your license renewal.
