The Springfield College School of Social Work and Behavioral Sciences is announcing the next offering of the Post-Master’s Certificate Program in Trauma-Informed Practice with Children and Adolescents.
The program provides opportunities for practicing social work and mental health professionals to advance their knowledge of trauma-informed interventions with children, adolescents, and their families. In the program, students study the cases of children and adolescents who have experienced trauma to apply up-to-date theoretical concepts and design interventions.
Students will have the option to enter the program in either the fall or spring semesters, with in-class meetings being held from 5:30-8:30 p.m., on Wednesday evenings in the Brennan Center, the home of the School of Social Work and Behavioral Sciences, located at 45 Island Pond Road in Springfield.
Students complete independent work during the 14 weeks each semester, with one final presentation at the conclusion of each semester. At the completion of two semesters, students earn 90 social work continuing education units and a certificate of completion in trauma-informed practice with children and adolescents.
Individuals interested in applying must be currently working with children or adolescents, and possess a master’s degree in social work, nursing, mental health, school counseling, psychology, or a related field.
